Another Dresden Block

I finished up my little Dresden quilt!

This one's machine appliquéd with a little tiny stitch.

The quilting was done with a new-to-me thread called Invisafil.

One of our local shop owners talked me into trying it for machine quilting and I'm pretty pleased with the results. It's super fine - 100 weight polyester - and I like how the stitching line barely shows. I was sewing from light to dark fabrics, which can make it hard to choose thread color. This worked great with no machine problems at all ( although I did lower my upper tension as instructed). Let me know if any of you have tried it!
