I love working with metallic thread - it looks so elegant, so I've been playing with design elements for the narrow quilt corners and the rose window corners.
The silver and gold design (above) is the Trinity symbol. The rose is something I'm just testing - rose, rose window - get it? It's always wise to test a design on scrap fabric. That print is not really going into the quilt.
I just finished my second 500 yard spool of black thread. And started a third.
