Threads and a Hop

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and hopefully got some stitching in. As soon as I started stitching, I saw I would be doing some ripping. Bummer. The navy thread is just too dark on this blue. I just have to finish up these blue triangle in my big block baby quilt with a little ruler work and fills. Then it will be ready to bind and mail off to my sister.

Here's a pic as I audition threads. Clearly I need more darker blue thread. Really, you can never have enough thread of any color!

I also wanted to announce our Craftsy Instructors' Blog Hop that starts today, first stop with Jackie Kunkel of Canton Village Quilt Works. She's a talented instructor of paper piecing and she'll tell you about her class Paper Piecing the Quiltworx Dresden Plate.

There's a giveaway associated with this blog hop through Craftsy, and I will be running my own giveaway with my post on Tuesday! Craftsy will be pulling 10 names from those who use this link: Blog Hop Giveaway to buy any of the classes in the blog hop and the winners will get a free class!

I'll be finishing this quilt up and sharing with you, plus I've got some nifty rulers to add to the shop and play with. 


  1. Purchased the Versa tool, when it arrived thought I would never use, looked complicated. I played around with it, trying the different sides on practise sandwich and found it was very useful. Quilting a throw from Victorious pattern Love your blog Amy and Craftsy course Quilting with rulers.

    1. Brenda, I'm glad to hear that you didn't let it intimidate you! It's just a few good smaller rulers combined into one. Thanks for letting me know that you're enjoying my work.
