This is quilt #27. These Jumbo-sized blocks were made using old shirts. I love the shadowed 3-D effect it has!
I quilted feathers in the border, a vine of leaves in the black border and over-all swirls in the center. I used grey Aurifil thread on top and Connecting Threads Silver Essential Pro in the bobbin. They seem to work well together for me-they are very similar in color and thickness. I really like Aurifil thread, but it is much more expensive, which is why I used the Essential Pro in the bobbin.
You can see in more detail from the back. I did change thread color in the black border to match. Anyone have any thread preferences out there? What breaks more than others? I'd love to hear about it!
