The Queen

11 comments
My London 2013 really is coming along too slowly to suit me but I have to accept the pace I'm at these days.  Slow and steady goes with my daily life.
I don't often work with fusible applique and I mostly I hand stitch my applique blocks but this crown would be excruciating to hand applique I think.  I'm really not good with the invisible polyester thread but it is a big improvement from the old stiff nylon thread I used years ago for machine applique.  This Superior brand thread worked pretty well but my tension was too tight.  Don't look closely.  Please.  However, I think the queen looks mostly pretty grand.  The PKM blue gingham is perfect for her majesty.

The gingham with polka dots is perfect! and Monopoly by Superior Threads is the best in my opinion.

Totally regal! Elizabeth never looked better--glad you didn't put one of those awful hats on her :)

Nonsense! You know as soon as you told me not to look - I would. Your stitches look perfect to me, and the block is just wonderful. You go Girl!

Your Queen is lovely! And that fabric is perfect. Seeing this quilt come together is very thrilling. I had a bad polyester thread experience years and have been wary of trying it again, maybe I should.
