I quilted the entire quilt with colors from my Aurifil’s Subtle Strings collection.  You may read more about the collection here, and exactly why those shades are chosen.  You may also order the thread collection from heresubtle1-1

And you will see how the Subtle Strings colors meet in the following close-up pictures.

That’s it for my Thread Journey 2.0!  It’s been such a fun journey for me being able to quilt to my little heart’s content on this one.  You may find the instructions on how to construct the quilt, as well as quilting suggestions here.

Come back tomorrow for the announcement of the giveaway winner of Windham’s Maribel FQ bundle.  Have a lovely rest of your week!

Click here to read more about the quilting process, posted on Auribuzz (Aurifil’s blog).  Be sure to read my deepest/darkest quilty thought at the end.  Don’t worry, it has a happy ending!

Before I key-off, I thought you might enjoy a bit of Miss Baby anecdote.  We were walking back from camp…

Me: When we get home, you will need to help me out by doing your Math work on your own.  I have a lot of get done today, and I am a bit stressed out.

Miss Baby:  Sure.  I will do that.  It’s a good thing you are used to it.

Me: Used to what?

Miss Baby: Stress!

Me:  Oh…. (so much for trying to get some sympathy from my own offspring!) :oP

Thanks for stopping by – I hope you have a fanta-bulously stupendous day!!!!

Another Thread Journey sighting… and totally unrelated question!

Hello Friends, I hope your summer has gone well for you.  We are already entering the last week of our first month of summer vacation.  I was so happy to see another Thread Journey quilt center completed… this time by Vicki.  If you haven’t known about Thread Journey, you may click here to find out.  Instructions to make the quilt center are posted here.

Vicki

Please keep sending me pictures of your work, not just Thread Journey.  I love seeing what you are working on – because I am nosy!

Meanwhile, we are enjoying our summer activities – library, museums, and stitching for us among other things. What are some of your favorite things to do in the summer?
