Cosmo Wonder

--- "Cosmo Wonder" Fabric Paper Collaged Quilt ---   
Latest in my attraction to fabric paper quilts, and
inspired by one of my most favorite flowers to grow in the garden:   
COSMOS! 
EnJOY!




I really enjoy using a very thick thread; it's like maybe 26 weight, made by YLI thread company, and designed by Laura Heine of Fiberworks Quilt Shop in Billings MT.  It's called  FUSIONS.  Love-love-love it. It gives a nice, thick punch of color and texture.  But you must use a 100/16 size top stitch needle if you want a smooth flow.  Then take it for a spin.
I usually put a  40 weight cotton or polyester in my bobbin, and (per usual procedure) lower my tension at least one level.
