It’s that time of year again–the sun starts showing up late and leaving early…
While we anticipate winter, we are treated with the glorious bounty and colors of autumn….
And here in Minnesota–Autumn is gorgeous!
I used several threads to create this little quilt including Sulky Rayon 40wt, Sulky cotton 30 wt…
I also found this absolutely perfect variegated thread from Superior–perfect to add just a bit of color to a Fall quilt! (I’ll be buying more of this today!)And I used Aurifil cotton 50 wt on top and in the bobbin. Aurifil cotton is a great all-purpose thread. It works well in the bobbin because it knots well with the more slippery fibers used on top like Rayon and polyester. On the top of the quilt, it provides a nice contrast to the shinier threads.
In honor of fall…
Challenge yourself to try a few new threads to create different effects in YOUR next quilt. Keep it safe by using threads in one color palette–
Or choose all the colors of the Farmers’ Market and really make it interesting!
