I did however spend quite a few happy hours with my machine on Saturday, working on the Whatever quilt. It has been quilted, oh boy, how that thing has been quilted.
I collected all my variegated Sulky Gutermann threads, matched them up with close enough bobbin threads and hit the pedal. The look of all those spools together almost make me weep, they are so pretty. What can I say, I have a thing for threads.
Looking at all those spools together, I realized something about my precious threads which even the salesperson at the store did not know. When I bought the 4 different oranges for the Spring in my step quilt, 3 of them had the same number but looked different, so I asked her and she said they must be from different dyes. See?
Well, the colour number is on the top of the spool, not the side.
See, different numbers.. Duh. And yes, I have used all but a couple of threads on the quilt.
Tomorrow is the Festival of Strings at Stitched in Colour (sorry, cannot link from the Blogger app), so do stop by if you want to see my finished solid/vintage string top.
Got to go, it's Tom & Jerry time.
Thanks for stopping by!
