A while ago I posted a question about whether it was feasable to do an all
inone applique and quilting on a quilt using invisible thread - I can tell
you that it does work!
I have just finished the quilt (ie sewing on the lable) and it looks pretty
good if I say so myself, so all I have to do now is post it to the customer
( yes, I am being paid 50 for this quilt!!!!!)
It was a Noah's ark complete with rainbow, dove, fish and whales in the sea,
and blocks as the border with the animals (2 of each) and Mr and Mrs Noah
appliqued round the edges. I did all the applique after layering the quilt
with invisible thread on the top and blue thread (to blend with the mostly
blue backing) on the back. - you can hardly see where the stitching is -It
looks really nice!!!!!! - all done in really bright solid fabrics (have you
ever seen a barbie pink giraffe??????)
I now have to post it to the lady who wanted me to make it for her niece in
Ireland, who was born 1 month ago (named Orla)
but at least the technique works.
