The Spark, The Brick and The Giveaway

Poppy QuiltGood Morning, Quilters!

Does it sound like we’re doing another Mystery Quilt-with the cryptic title for today’s post?

Let me explain…One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to review my extensive photo collection and purge.  As I was working away at my computer, I came across this photo of The Poppy Quilt on my garden wall….The Spark

Next thing I knew, I was sitting at my sewing machine…(So much for NY Resolutions!)

Brick QuiltHowever, one of my other resolutions is to try new threads.

I used Superior’s King Tut (extra long-staple) cotton to create The Bricks in this quilt.  I love how the variegated thread adds even more texture to The Bricks.

Brick QuiltThe Spark…led to The Brick Wall Tutorial on Tuesday.

Next, I sent off a photo and a note to Superior Threads...

  1. My resolution is to continue practicing FMQ skills. You have really inspired me. I’ve learned how much practice it takes to turn an idea into reality. It is amazing how much thread I go through as a practice. I would love a Superior Thread gift certificate.

  2. I am a new quilter…my resolution for the sewing year ahead is to learn free motion quilting.
    My straight lines are beginning to bore me : )


  3. I resolve to finish quilting two quilts that are already basted but I have yet to figure out how to quilt them. I don’t have a favorite King Tut. I favor the variable ones for quilting patchwork quilts with lots of colors.

  4. I’ve never tried King Tut thread and this year I have bought myself a Sweet 16 so I’m having a lot of trial and error, working out how and what to do. I’m excited!

  5. I’d love to try the King Tut Thread. I’m just getting back into quilting after 15 years or so and machine quilting was the NEW thing instead of hand quilting. I’ve only done a little machine quilting so am anxious to try what I see on Lori’s posts.

  6. My resolutions this year are to finish a lot of UFOs. I have taken a class on machine quilting and plan to quilt to some of my projects myself!

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