Pallets 2

Second sample now done. I'm really liking this matchstick quilting. I've only ever used it on my journal quilts before. I start in the middle and work out to either side stitching from the top each time. I stitch a machine-foot width apart first then go back and sew in the spaces. It gives a very nice handle to the cloth. I used two shades of grey thread and a variegated black thread which I've had for ages and never found a use for before.
Here is the monochrome version under the machine.

 I've also been playing around with some new cloth samples where there is a different colour on each side so that 6 pieces give you 12 colourways! How about that?

Delicious Heathery colours!!
