Machine quilting hearts with WonderFil’s Tutti thread

 

Yesterday on QUILTsocial, I showed you 3 versatile designs to machine quilt with Fabulux thread from WonderFil. Today, I’m going to machine quilt the Valentine’s Day tablerunner that I made last month on QUILTsocial. The tablerunner was made using a jelly roll, and I embellished it with felted wool hearts that were appliqued and embroidered with Eleganza thread. Today, I’m going to show you how I machine quilt heart designs with WonderFil’s Tutti thread.

The last time I used WonderFil’s Tutti thread on QUILTsocial, I did some really fun thread painting, so I was using it on my home machine. This time, I’m going to load it onto my Gammill and try it for machine quilting. The variegated pink that WonderFil sent to me looks like it will work well with the pinks in the tablerunner.

In love with hearts

I have to admit it, I’m crazy about hearts! As a result, many of my quilt patterns end up with heart designs on them and many times when I’m quilting, hearts will make their way onto the quilt. And really, for a Valentine’s Day tablerunner, what other machine quilting design would I use??? Hearts can be used in lots of different ways for machine quilting, so I decided to make a little video showing how I used them to quilt my tablerunner.

Here’s a close up of the designs that I used on the table runner. I’m so happy that I finally got this project quilted even though I didn’t make it in time for Valentine’s Day! I’ll put it away and debut it next year!!
