Hurray! I managed to do some quilting in between the business of the past weekend. I used YLI silk thread to do this background quilting and it is lovely. It is the first time I have used silk thread for quilting and I will definitely use it again. The only real problem I encountered was getting both my top and bottom tension adjusted for the thread. It literally took me an hour to get my tension set. Hopefully, I can get the rest of this piece quilted in between the mountains of laundry I am washing today.
