Topping It Off

I tried to get a photo of the topping I use on towels but it is clear so not the easiest thing to see. When I embroider on something that has a heavy pile like terry cloth I use this topping. I still use my regular stabilizer on the back side. Add a layer of this to the top. It keeps the stitches from sinking into the pile of the fabric. Total water soluable. Most of it just tears away, the rest can be spritzed away with water. I don't have a brand name on it. Something packaged by my local sewing machine store. I would not have known about it except my husband bought me every type of stabilizer they had when he got my machine.

The bandana quilt is done. I did most of it Friday night before the leak. I really like how it turned out. I have enough of the cowboy and cowgirl print fabric to do at least one more crib size quilt. That will have to wait until after the bathroom gets some attention.

  1. Thanks for the stabilizer info. I do happen to have some of that on hand. I'm telling ya, that hubby of yours is a real keeper. He bought you types of stabilizer too?! Can we clone him?

    Love the bandana quilt; great job! xo,
