Smoke on the Water, continued...

Got all the "fire" part of "Smoke on the Water" done, but definitely need some water in the blue areas. As an aside, I wonder how Alex feels about my naming the quilt for her!

Close-up of the flames.....

This sashiko stencil from The Stencil Company (#SCL-030-12) will work perfectly for the water, now I just have to choose my threads.

On the left are the two variegated threads from Superior Threads that will work well in the top of the machine -- for the darker areas, King Tut #935, a blend of turquoise/purple/green/blue; and Rainbows #815, a trilobal polyester in shades of blues and greens. The thread on the right is a Mettler Silk Finish 100% cotton thread in #563, a vivid blue that I have seen recently called Aegean.

Now to the machine!
