spinning stripes show n tell

This week Lesley popped into the shop to discuss the quilting of and thread colour for her quilt.  She attended my class with Coastal Quilters earlier this year.
The blocks below will be the centre feature of her quilt.  Lesley has decided she will quilt this section and add more blocks and borders using the joining technique of the Quilt as you Go method.

When auditioning thread for your quilting - don't just rely on the colour of the thread on the spool.  Actually unwind it a little and lay the thread onto your fabric.  Quite often darker thread is actually much lighter when unwound.

Happy stitching.
