Block 6 of the One World Quilt Along has just been released and this is the last horizontal block in this quilt. It's actually the last full block in the entire quilt as the sashing, borders and one appliqué element will be what we're working on next month.
I saw this block as the perfect opportunity to use some metallic thread on the snowflakes in this block. I was pleased that my Janome 8900 handled the metallic thread with no problem at all. I just had to reduce the top tension on my sewing machine and be sure to use a large enough needle and it was just like stitching with any other type of quality thread.

Have fun with this month's block and see you March 15, 2017 for the final part of this quilt.
