How are your Mystery Quilts progressing?
Last week we began adding spools of thread and making comparisons.
This week we are adding a final clue in the corner.
As a reminder of the how to match needle size to thread size, we’re going to add the 80/50 Rule to the corner square.
The 80/50 rule of thumb…(Read more HERE)
Pair a size 80 needle with a 50 wt thread (Size 80 needle=American size 12)
If your thread is heavier ( 40wt or 35wt) , pair it with a size 90 needle (90=14 American)
If your thread is finer (60wt), pair it with a size 70 needle. (70=10 American)
This is just a rule of thumb…a place to start.
In the corner, add a spool of thread with “50” stitched on to the label. Then add a needle with “80” stitched into the line of thread.
Next week will finish our Mystery Quilt-a-Long…
and file it away in the….
