A Bit-O-Handwork

I’ve got a UFO to get out of the closet/onto the design wall AND a quilt to square up and prepare for binding, but first a bit-o-handwork!

Any time I sit on the couch Moe thinks it’s time to sit on my lap. He is a lap dog after all.

This is the project. It’s an Arkansas Traveler block. It will be a pillow cover to match a lap quilt that is ready for quilting (not hand quilting) and in my queue.

This handwork business is new to me so I’m not sure what type of thread I really should be using or if/when to double strand it. I’m pretty sure it all depends on the look/feel I’m going for, but any tips/pointers you can offer are appreciated.

These are the threads I’m using.

I got this contraption from the “freebie” table at our chapter meeting last month. I love freebies! I’m hoping someone can explain how I’m supposed to use it for handwork.

Thanks for stopping by.
