Shadow Quilting

Afternoon Shadows on Circling Sevenstar

I am fortunate to have a room that receives late afternoon sunlight through the windows. They do however make unusual colours of quilts. The back of this quilt is White Magna Glide Classics 1900+ metre of it.

When you take it off the frame and find you have missed a bit

There are those shadows playing colours again. 9 different colours of Glide #40 and two of Glide 60wt used for the quilting.

Real backing colour this time

I have Daylight lighting in my studio, plus 3 metres of windows on a northern wall. When you use your longarm table to sew on a hanging sleeve and for 3 random designs on the back the sleeve matched the facing.

Bobbin Comparison

The shop has both Magna Glide Delight bobbin in 40 wt Glide Thread and Magna Glide Classic bobbins in 60 wt thread available.

L and M Bobbins

The M size are larger but in the Delight Jars there is a total of 1210m of thread on 10 bobbins. The L size Jar has 20 bobbins with a total of 1320m. You can use L size in your M bobbin case!

The Magna Glide Classics are available in Boxes of 72 for the colours or 100 for the Black and White.

I also break down the boxes into Budget Packs of 24 bobbins in the non neutral colours. As the Classics are a 60wt thread an M size Budget pack contains 4872m of thread. The L size Budget pack contains 2880 metres of thread.

Just a little play with numbers after restocking the shop this morning!
