I'm also working on a secret project that I hope to finish soon. It's a set of mini quilts with a theme and I'm going to gush about it all next week.
For now, I'm just going to gush a little...about hand quilting:
Turns out, hand quilting mini quilts is just about the funnest thing ever. I think I mostly have the pearl cotton thread to thank. It's so smooth and hardly ever tangles. It also makes this really soft, silky sound as you sew. I still like the sharp hiss of regular cotton thread but this is much calmer, much lazier.
Anyway, that's enough for now. I hope you all have a nice weekend, lazy or otherwise!
