When quilting and literature collide! Afton Warrick of @quiltingmod used Alice in Wonderland fabrics to create an absolutely amazing quilt. One of our favorite motifs is the paper pieced pink flamingo & improv red roses! To make the quilt extra special, Afton quilted verses from the book using @aurifilthread 12wt thread! "I quilted selected poems from Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass using 12 wt Medium Red #5002 Aurifil thread. As this was a new technique for me, I learned a few helpful strategies.
-Adjust the tension and needle size.
-Hold onto the top and bobbin threads really well after pulling the bobbin thread up to begin sewing. -When tying off threads, refrain from popping the knot into the batting, and instead pull only the thread tails through before clipping. -A busy backing can hide some less glamorous quilting moments.
-Order the large spool, as the small spool of 12 wt runs out before you know it." To see more amazing details, please visit: http://quiltingmod.blogspot.com/2017/05/wonderland-quilt-close-up-look.html
