That's right... I have used 4 spools of black thread on my black & white piece. I am heading out to RETREAT in a bit and unfortunately I didn't get it finished. Hopefully I will do so tonight, before tomorrow's show-n-tell.

Just wanted to let you know that I figured out how to finish the swirl that comes off the edge. I have the top all quilted and squared. I will add the binding, with the swirl folded back on to the top. Then I will use my fusible pellon and solid black backing and fuse the swirl sandwich. Next, I will trim the excess pellon and backing and then satin stitch around the edges. I will probably need to go around it a couple of times to completely cover the edge, but that is ok.

So now my last delimna... I have NO MORE black thread! Hopefully, they will have some black Mediera Rayon thread at the retreat....

Did I say that last word loud enough.... RETREAT.... RETREAT.... 50 woman, quilting, eating, laughing, eating, quilting, bonding, eating for 3 days.... ahhhh SHEER BLISS!

Have a great weekend everyone... I will post pictures when I get back!
