|Lots of lines to quilt!|
|I used light blue thread to quilt the center of the panel|
|I switched to yellow thread and filled in the yellow triangles and left the rest of the triangles open. I plan on quilting around the umbrellas|
I have implemented Leah Day's suggestion to use a spool stand. Not only did it work to eliminate the Aurifil thread breaking, it helped with the tension on the Isacord. I don't have any questions this week for Leah, just a huge thank you for last week's answer to my thread problem.
