It all started with one. Then another.
Don't they look cool?! I love the orange thread on black. I'm using a "Connecting Threads" thread. It's a bit like a "King Tut" from Superior.
I like them for quilting. But, I don't like that I don't know a color or a number after I unwrap the thread. So if I run out, I'm going to have to guess at which orange I'm using.
I also did a new thing. I dyed my backing. Yup, I dyed it.
Last year? Or maybe the year before, I bought 2 king sized sheet sets from a discount store.
Really, who could pass up orange pok-a-dots from Ralph Lauren? Not me, that's for sure! They just were too big for my bed. But I wasn't going to let them go to waste.
They were only $15 per set. How much would that much fabric cost? I knew that I could use them as fabric and maybe a backing (or two).
Except that these dots were a little bright for this current Halloween quilt.
I learned this from Barb. Barb has been a fountain of information.
You know those letters I put on my Jubilee quilt? That idea came from her too!
I'm often lurking and learning from her blog.
If you haven't already, go check out her blog, she's wonderful and sew creative!
Back to my webs!
Take care, Brandie
