Genene’s Placemats with Variegated Thread

Genene sent me these placemat pictures because she used our variegated thread:

I used bfc thread to quilt and highlight stitching. It was the perfect thread to compliment this batik fabric.

To be specific, I used the VR 0006 with a hem stitch set at 3.5 on my Brother machine to get the heavier veining down the center and from each big point on the leaf. I used the same thread and a stem stitch at default settings to do the additional veining on the leaf to have a lighter look but adding the varying touch of color. The nice thing is it’s a play with color and light. The longer stitches catch the color more, so you notice that veining first, then your eye goes to the softer touches of color that don’t reflect the light as much. It’s a cool ‘journey’ for the eye. LOL

 

Cherie and Variegated Thread

The metallic runs with no problem I set it on floor a tip I heard,  and it beautiful so I was excited when I saw it on sale. Any Way  I love all your thread . I made a bunch of crosses for my sister in Montana with Your variegated thread. I add a ribbon so it can be used for bookmark.

Here are some I made last night. Some I use the variegated in bobbin and some I just use a dominate color for bobbin and looks just as good. The blue I used a darker blue as bobbin.  Cherie

I love the look of the variegated for the FSL (free standing Lace) – great Idea!
