|My rendition of "Deer in the Headlights" by Boo Davis My quilt measures 24" x 28"|
In the orange bits (Kona kumquat) I used a Sulky Blendables 30# orange with yellow variegated
For the thread sketching on the face and ears, I used Wonderfil 50# Tutti colour TU34 a variegated brown/orange/rust
For the pebbling on the neck, I used Gutterman 50# Colour 3110 dark brown
For this project I tried an Inspira Microtex needle size 80/12.
Each of the three different threads worked well with this needle and my freemotion quilting was problem-free. I also tried a new free-motion foot for my machine but more on that later.
The binding is a brown/white stripe that reminded me of a necktie, that I cut on the bias. Attached by machine and sewn to the back by hand.
I had to pay great attention to sewing to match the stripes when joining to make the binding strip and as bad luck would have it...one of the seams landed dead on a corner! But I steamed the bejeepers out of it and it is not noticeable.
Here's a link to a video that shows some of Boo's other creations from her book "Dare to be Square"
