**Don’t miss out on information on Tiled Parquet – my debut design for Quilt Theory – and its associated giveaway!** The giveaway is now closed.
I finally gave in and ordered my first cone of Aurifil thread. You guys, it is awesome!
Since I needed to re-order a large spool of thread (I am using up a lot of thread as I quilt these days), I went ahead and ordered a cone of 2600, Dove, which I pretty much always use for piecing. Seeing the two side by side is impressive! I ordered both from Hawthorne Threads, and the Large Spool pricing comes down to $0.008 per yard and the cone is $0.007 per yard. What is super impressive is that the Large Spool has 1421 yards (0.8 miles) of thread and the cone has over 4.5 times as much with 6452 yards (3.66 miles)!
I was also the lucky winner of a Quilt Alliance Giveaway hosted by Jess @Quilty Habit, and the giveaway package arrived this week. I never know what to do with mini charm packs. Does anyone have good suggestions? I’m also pondering if I should put some thought into a design to use them…
I was also the lucky giveaway winner selected by Jen @A Dream and A Stitch for her shadow block blog hop giveaway. I received the delightful thread catcher and pin cushion this week. I just love the colors!
