Aspen Frost

On the Aspen Frost mini tumbler quilt, I decided I wanted to used a straight stitch to hand quilt it. I need some more practice as you can see my lines are not always as straight as I would like them.

Boo Crew
Sweetwater
Moda

I just love to stitch on the monster print! If you look carefully where I used French Knot for some of their eyes. Then using the Back Stitch
in their hair! Giving them texture and a little 3D effect!

Our awesome friends at Aurifil have provided a sampler package of thread for the Giveaway. I use Aurifil 12 wt. thread for all my hand stitching.

This giveaway is open to all! It ends on July 11, 2013! If you are a no-reply blogger leave an email!
