On this next quilt, I'm stepping out of my box, or maybe I should say, I'm going to take my time, make a plan, draw it out and use more than 1 color thread and enjoy the journey, not the race!
But I've discovered that my red is off. This is the red from Fig Tree's Aurifil Thread collection. . . yea, way different then Sweetwater's fabric color-way . . .
So I need to order the right red . . .
#2260 looks about right
While researching thread, I found some good finds:
if you flip off the top, you'll find the end of your thread.
(you think fabric's expensive? that's about $300 worth of thread in that picture!!)
Look at this fabulous thread art by Sophie Standing
Do you have anything fun or interesting to share about your favorite thread?
happy quilting !!
