Keep it Simple!

Strip quilt


Here’s a great idea for a fast baby quilt.  Michelle combined  fun fabrics for a perfect first granddaughter quilt.  The pantograph, Daisy Swirl, adds a sweet element.

I’m still designing baby quilts for the remaining 3 babies to be delivered this year, I’m tempted to try this strip quilt for one of them!  Stay tuned to find out!

New Favorite Thread!

I love thread!  Have you purchased quilting thread just hoping you’ll get to use it?  That’s what I did with my recent purchase of Superior Threads Bright Light Green.   It’s much brighter and more florescent in person!  It didn’t happen immediately but I finally got to use it, three times in a row!

The first quilt was Kinsey’s quilt.  My first instinct was to use aqua but that looked dull, the bright green was perfect!  I only wish I had bought 2 spools so I didn’t have to unthread to wind a bunch of bobbins!

The pantograph is Daisy Swirl by Jodi Beamish.


The second is an original Friendship Star quilt by Karen.  Again, the lime color just popped out and we went for the bright color to accent fabric.

The third one is Candy’s Lil’ Twister quilt from our summer retreat.  The brightest fabric is the lime green and the thread tied it all together!

Needless to say, I’ll be getting another spool of this thread for bobbin winding!  Fortunately, there’s an AQS quilt show in Des Moines next week with lots of vendors, including Superior Threads…I hope!

Thanks for looking!  🙂 Linda
