Securing the sandwich
I do a good bit of thread work on my quilts, but because I like to pin my quilt sandwich rather than temp spraying and gumming my needle, I often use a clear monofilament thread to secure things so I can ditch the pins giving me more freedom with detailed thread work. I'm starting this phase with this mountain lion piece. When using Monofilament, I prefer thin polyester over a nylon. I use monofilament in top and bobbin.. setting top tension low.
