Thread Samples for Free Motion Quilting

Nora's Rose Free Motion Quilting thread samplesThe weather has been beautiful in Minnesota for the past two weeks and I have been out and about exploring our wonderful park system…

Good for me, but bad for the quilt-blogging business…

Today, just a gentle reminder to make thread samples before every project!

Read more about recommended quilting Threads.

(NOTE This sample is Nora’s Rose-See the tutorial for Nora’s Rose free motion quilt pattern.)

Also, Please note:  The free motion quilt tutorial page has been updated and all the motifs are available!

Enjoying the weather while I can,

  1. So true and I have to train myself to do this when doing a project. This post was particularly timely because I just ordered some of the Superior thread sample sets (they’re having a great newsletter sale promotion) and was looking forward to trying out all the great threads I’ve heard so much about.

  2. Lori, I am brand new, not even born yet, to FM quilting. Do you have any beginner tutorials, or suggestions of a good place to start? I love the simple way you break each design down into simple steps. Thank you for sharing your talent with us!

  3. Great idea! It also gives you more practice with whatever motif you are going to quilt. So glad I stumbled upon your blog.

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
