I love beautiful prints on anything. And I am addicted to mugs and tins.
These are a few things I came back with from Vienna. I will gladly go again there for a few more 🙂
I found the perfect things to put in them!
So why do you do when you want to try something new? Like Aurifil 12wt ?
You would (should) buy a spool. Not me!
First, I bought a color card – just to be sure that I will buy the exact colors I want.
I mean – different colors, different tones!
I wasn’t successful!
These are the large spools – 355 yards / 325 meters. Now you have an idea about how thick this thread is!
Did I mention that I wanted 10 spools ? The order (from Hawthorne Threads) arrived with 21 spools! I couldn’t give up to any from my cart!
Now wish me luck with the new quilt. I need it!
And stay tuned because I learned a lot (the hard way) about free motion quilting with such a thick thread!
Edited to add
Finished quilt here.
