|Midnight Stars finished|
|with some tools|
Some of the things I used on this quilt are in this picture. I used the plastic top from a ricotta cheese container for the circle template. It was the exact size I wanted. I used Cebelia thread to quilt with. I think this is a crochet thread and I've always wanted to try it. Since this quilt isn't that big, it seemed like a good project to experiment. I'm glad I tried it but I won't use it again. See the pliers? I used those with every stitch. I can usually get the needle through with a wide rubber band but not this thread! The bent piece of metal is a Finger Protector (?) for my under hand I purchased at Quilt Expo in Portland several years ago. I'm lost without it. I looked at Quilt Expo last September but couldn't find them - I was going to get a spare. (I know I can get them online in an emergency.)
Since this is finished, I've been going through some of my old (like 25 or 30 years old) quilt books for another project. It's amazing how styles have changed.
