Stitching 2 Blackbird Pincusion using Valdani Threads and Blackbird at Houston Quilt Market 2010

I was fortunate to see Barbara and Alma this year again in the Houston Quilt Market in October 2010. They had a very nice booth and lots of visitors. We chat for a while and they are so nice, personable and friendly.

I stitched 2 of the Blackbird Pincushion designs using Valdani threads, they turned out so pretty. I took a little more time to do the finishing. I used Wichelt Lambswool fabric. The Wichelt fabric is a little bit "stiff" and they are great for stitching small because it makes the finishing easier to take shapes.

For the Blackbird Blue Bird design, I used Valdani P8, P2, H212 and O562.

For the Blackbird Winter Garden Pincushion, I used Valdani O503, O575, O526, M90, and O78. I added the beads.I modified the chart a little and put the inital "A" in the middle.

I carry Valdani threads both 3 ball version and 6 strand floss.They are color fast and the prices are great.
