May your day be a Walk in the Park!
Today I am doing a little gardening…no gloves required…just my camera and a few quilts…
I made this poppy quilt several years ago–from a pattern by Carol Morrissey.
It required a lot of fused appliqué (and resulted in several burned fingertips!) As you might guess, my favorite part was the free motion quilting!
Ruby likes it, too!
Are you in your garden or your studio today? (Or both?!)
Last week in the post, Let’s Talk About Threads (read more HERE), I recommended two threads, Aurifil cotton for piecing and quilting and Sulky rayon for quilting. Then I asked you to share your favorite quilting threads. I plan to give each recommended thread a “test drive” over the coming weeks. If you’d like to join me, here’s a list of reader-recommended threads for quilting:
Cotton Threads–for quilting and piecing
Rayon Threads-for quilting, applique (not recommended for piecing)
Polyester Threads-for quilting, applique, embroidery
Invisible Threads – for quilting
Check your local quilt store for these threads….if unavailable, readers have recommended the following online sources for the above threads:
Superior Threads —www.superior threads.com
Red Rock Threads-–www.redrockthreads.com
I have used this site, too and can recommend them.
Supplies most of the threads on the list (except Glide)

Let’s keep this conversation “thread” going…if you find anything you like (or don’t like) please let me know…
I will post regularly with updates including samples, sources, needle pairings, price comparisons….
