FMQ on a Featherweight with 28wt Aurifil

I'm psyched about Free Motion Quilting
on a Featherweight 221!
Have you tried it?
I used two of my favorite Aurifil
threads --  28wt and 50wt !
I'm sharing details on a
guest post for Aurifil's

Stay tuned for my post

For my mini whole-cloth stitched on the
I used a red Moda Linen
layered with Quilters Dream Wool.
I did a little pin basting and made
some "improvements" to my Featherweight
(thanks Featherweight Shop)
and I was ready to go!.

I stitched the curled feather and one round of echo quilting with Aurifil 28wt on top
with 50wt in the bobbin.
(with the January Milan yummy Color Builder colors... )
I switched to lovely February Pompeii red Color Builder colors in 50wt top and bobbin for subsequent echo quilting.
You can NEVER have enough color options!!
This is exactly why the new Color Builder subscription program is the best.

with Aurifil thread and
all those amazing tools from The Featherweight Shop!

I can't wait for this new learning adventure to begin !!
