I think it turned out okay, but let me tell you it was not fun!! I used Peltex 72F as my batting and it was not fun sewing on it. My tread kept breaking. I changed my needle twice and still it was a pain! So my thinking was that sewing threw the Peltex was screwing up the tension. I even used my new Tribute 140C to sew the binding on and it still broke the thread. So then when I went to sew my sleeve on I used a different thread and wouldn't you know it worked fine. Granted, I was only sewing a 12 inch line but it was much better. So my conclusion is that my Superior thread did not like the Peltex. I love my Superior thread and will continue to use it but now I know (and you do too!) that it does not work well on Peltex!
Here is a fun angle shot of my cord. I used aluminum jewelry wire to make it. This is why I used Peltex for my batting. I needed something that would support the wire on the quilt. I also used antique pearl buttons on the dial.
I also finished a beehive pincushions. This is going to be the First Prize at the Small Quilt Viewers Choice Contest at the West Michigan Quilt Guild's July meeting. The bee pins I made using Shrinky-Dinks. So fun!!
