Why did I decide to use Perle Cotton?
In the past, I've used three strands of embroidery floss for this type of "funky" quilting. I wanted to try a different medium this time. No real reason!
What weight of Perle Cotton am I using?
Hmmm. Good question. I'm not sure. I just bought what Joann's had! Even after looking at the label, I'm not sure. I bought several skeins, all different colors, some variegated.
What kind of needle do you use?
I'm using Chenille needles. They are long, sturdy, and sharp, and they have a big eye.
It's kind of ironic that I work on this during the Olympics - now that I think about it, the circles remind me of the Olympic rings. I didn't think of the correlation until a little while ago.
