For Jan’s 2 samplers, she wanted very simple quilting so they both have a meander. The batting is Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton.
We based the thread color choice on the fabric used in the center, where the meander is slightly smaller to go around the applique. The thread is OMNI by Superior. The color is a soft gold, which for many quilts is like a neutral. I’ve used it on several quilts.
For the pink and brown sampler, we selected Superior Threads Choco Cherry Lava. The quilt photograph doesn’t show the color change as well, but it’s perfect for this quilt! This is a good one to add to your thread collection.
For Mary’s star sampler, we decided on custom quilting with different designs for each block, separate border designs and a featured design in the center! This one took some planning, but once I got started it just seemed to take on a life of it’s own! The batting is Quilter’s Dream Poly select and the thread is Superior So Fine #50. I took a lot of pictures so here’s a link to the front and back galleries.
