When I first started my fish project, I really wanted to quilt it using just a running stitch to depict the fluidity of water surrounding each of my fish. I wanted really big chunky stitches and I was hoping that I could use for aurifill floss.
So I asked aurifil if I could do this project which is quite large it’s 60 x 80“ in floss, they recommend it that I try a double strand of the 12 weight folded over so the equivalent of four strands of 12 wt thread.
I did a sample with some floss and some 12 weight and believe it or not I actually really liked the 12 weight’s shine better than the floss. 12 wt shifts colour as I walked past it, my running stitch, which was a unique feature the floss didn’t seem to have.
Over all I’m thrilled with the texture and colour story this.
