Quilting is daunting sometimes. I suppose that's why we have so many UFO's. Our eyes are bigger than our stomach-or so goes the old saying about filling your buffet plate too heavily for you to eat when you were a kid.
My new favorite thread for hand stitching is Essential from Connecting Threads. One of the gals in our group, Mary, discovered this website and purchased this very inexpensive thread for our members that wanted to split the mailing cost, I think each spool of 1200 yards, size 50 was only 1.25. Boy was I surprised when I grabbed the closest color to my binding (not the one pictured, I used that to show the label). In the past I've used a thread conditioner, called Thread Heaven, to keep my thread from twisting and knotting when hand stitching. This thread did not need it. It came off the spool beautifully and did not knot! I'm sure it's made more for the machine, but, upon my quick need to match thread to binding, as I'm under the deadline for our party on Tuesday this is a superb discovery, thanks Mary!
Quick movie review-The Good German-don't bother I finished the binding while I was watching The Good German-don't waist your time, unless you really like the film Noir genre, which I am a big fan of, also George Clooney and Kate Blanchet and Toby Macguire-it should have been great....alas...
Quick CD review: Instant Karma-relief for Darfur-Check it out!
On to all things quilting...smile. This is what it takes to finish a quilt: Essential Thread from Connecting Threads; Archival quality pen to make your label; the label itself.
Make it a great day!
