As I've been working on my Rust quilt, I'm finding just how much of a challenge it is to machine quilt rust dyed fabric.
I'm making slow progress, but I thought I'd show you a couple of areas that are now done. I'm really happy with the look I'm achieving, but I can't tell you how many times I've had to rethread the machine because the rust is literally shredding my thread as I sew.
Fortunately I am now moving into some areas which are going to have hand stitching so I'll have a break from the machine work, at least for a while.
I was considering showing you more, but Arbour thinks I should make you wait until it's done...
