In the last twelve months I have discovered Flickr, pinterest, twitter (you can find me @prettybobbins), and finally today I signed up for Instagram. I really have no idea what I'm doing but I figure its just more opportunities to drool over quilt candy :) Please share any tips or hints that you have and feel free to comment below with your name/linky/thingy so I can find you and follow you :)
Today I have been having a heap of fun quilting Mr 6's Rainbow I Spy quilt. I'm so excited with how it is coming together! A few months back I invested in a rainbow of Aurifil thread from Kate Quilts in preparation for this project.
Can I tell you how exciting it is to be finally matching the threads to the rainbow border and getting my quilt on? Seriously cool! (If you're a total quilt dork that is...)
More recently I purchased two large 5,000m cones of Aurifil thread, 2024 in both 40 and 50wt from Want it, Need it, Quilt. I had a whole heap of trouble with my tension and it soon became obvious that I needed a large cone stand. Would you believe it, that the one sewing shop here in Nouméa had ONE stand left? At approximately $8 I snapped up that baby (remember that this is a small island and everything costs a premium) and was overjoyed to try it out. Et voila! Tension issues no more :D
Have you made any additions to your stash this week? Do you enjoy matching threads to fabrics and seeing it all come together? (Who am I kidding? Of course you do!)
I'm linking up with Sunday Stash hosting by the lovely Fiona at Finding Fifth.
