Ack! There’s far to much to do in the amount of time left before school’s out for summer. Ack!
So I’m trying to motor right along:
Dill pickle green — actually the green in the quilt is called “poison.” Perfect! Well, dill pickle would have been perfect.
Have you seen that Rowan now has 100% cotton premium thread collections?
I was pretty excited when I found out. In person, the threads do not disappoint!
On the left is Amy Butler’s Love thread collection. On the right is Kaffe Fassett’s Circus thread collection. The colors are fantastic! The thread is extra long Mercerized Egyptian Giza Cotton in size 50. I haven’t sewn with it yet but it feels smooth and wonderful. This thread will be great for my purposes — I already love sewing with these colors so the threads will be a nice match. And I don’t have a good selection of solid cotton threads I could use for top stitching or for more decorative, color-specific quilting — while the lighter weight cottons I have fill in in a pinch, I think these will work better. Oooooh, wouldn’t these be PRETTY on top of some shot cottons?!?! Is this a trick question?
I’ll let you know as soon as I give it a whir through the machine but I have a feeling it won’t disappoint. These thread collections should start showing up in your local stores very soon. Thanks to Sarah for sending out these little treasures!
Ack, now there’s even less time left before school is out! Back to work!
