Good Morning, Quilters!
Today we are going to look at thread and fabric combinations for quilting and compare using one quilting pattern.
Every good quilting project begins with a doodle! (YOU doodle, right?!–If not, you might like Easy Doodles for Those Who Think They Can’t)
While I haven’t had much time in my sewing room, I always find time to doodle!
Two Garden Inspired Motifs
Most of my doodles go right in the trash, some get saved and a rare few get stitched immediately…
This doodle inspired me to stitch!
My Favorite Thread/Fabric Combination
First, I stitched the motif in one of my favorite thread and fabric combinations:
I just LOVE this combination! I LOVE white thread on solid fabric.
Spagetti on Linen
Generally speaking, spaghetti does not mix well with linen…seems like a laundry disaster in the making!
But, I love how Spagetti Thread by Wonderfil looks on linen!
Spagetti thread is 12 wt which is probably the heaviest weight thread you can stitch on a domestic sewing machine.
Doesn’t that look scrumptious?!
Brief Programming Note
Summers are very short in Minnesota and I LOVE to spend as much family time outdoors as possible when I have a chance. As a result, you may notice an erratic blogging schedule….
I’m sure YOU will understand–and maybe YOU are in YOUR garden, too!?
What about YOU?
Are YOU enjoying beautiful weather?
Can YOU take your stitching or doodles outside?
What’s YOUR favorite thread and fabric combination?
We’d LOVE to hear!
