Well, for a number of reasons, but one of the main one's is this:  I most always use different colors and weights of thread on the front and back sides of a quilt.  I started out that way 10 years ago and rarely have any problems with tension adjustments.  I love the fact that the thread on the opposite side isn't seen or even hinted at on the other side.  I pick whatever I like for the back, and then choose colors for the front.  I never even worry about the different weights of thread or how many different top threads I may have.  Those who know me or any of my thread painting, can see the variety and different types of thread I may use in a piece.  My first Millie was the same.  Never any problems!  I'm so glad I picked a Millie all those years ago!  The pic is a customer who brought me two fabrics she just wanted me to quilt so she can make a bunch of placemats and candle mats to sell at her church's fundraiser.  She's just going to cut them out and bind them!  Easy peasy!

Sue! Thank you! Did you see the appliqué quilt that's the guild opportunity quilt this year? I would dearly love to win that one!



Yes I did see the opportunity quilt.  I had already bought tickets as it had been at one of my guild meetings last month.  When I saw it at the meeting it looked very familiar.  It took me a few minutes to realize that I had seen it on the forum a few days earlier.  It is beautifully quilted.  I too would like to win it but I am not holding my breath!
