Cindy here, reporting in from New York. The big GRAY BARN is in view through a misty rain. Mom, dad and I are just relaxing and hoping the sun will shine sometime today. Good thing I brought a few quilting projects with me!
A few months ago, Sandy scored big at an antique store…10 antique red and white Ohio Star blocks. These unfinished blocks measure 11 x 11 inches square.
I like how the blocks were pieced by hand, very special!
Sandy and I have created three different projects from these 10 blocks. You’ll see our feature project and pattern soon…Sandy is putting the finishing touches on it as we speak!
Meanwhile, since the blocks were pieced by hand, I thought I would hand quilt one block. I found a spool of red quilting cotton and a spool of cream quilting cotton in my vast thread stash and started quilting.
GASP…my thread broke over and over again!
Okay, so it took me awhile to admit my thread was the problem. Once I realized this…quilting thread stash went into the trash!
Question for our readers:
What is your favorite brand of hand quilting thread?
There are so many different threads to choose from, I definitely need some advice!
