Project Quilting Week Three: All About That Thread

The theme for week three of Project Quilting is "All About that Thread".

I decided to go small this week after my huge bed size quilt last week.  
It made for a more relaxing week and I still got to participate even though I spent three days at the hospital with my son while he had his appendix removed.  We came home Saturday afternoon and I finished up my project while my son recovered on the couch.  He is recovering well thank goodness, which gave me time to finish up this mini quilt.


The Unicorn pattern is from www.robynieland.com.
I first saw it on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/crookedwhimsy/) and wanted to make one of my very own. I used a black background so I could show off some thread work for this weeks theme.

It measures 21 x 21 inches.

I used all brands of thread: Aurifil, Gutermann, Sulky, and Connecting Threads.

It was fun to paint my background with thread.  
My son said it looked like a cool drawing instead of quilting.
