After my class with Hollis Chatelain I am well inspired.
Interestingly I ran a very much shortened version of this type of class at a recent Quensland Quilters meeting.
I will now - after cleaning the house for the dinner guests- do some serious sewing this week. There is so little time and so much to do.
The quilt line is so much a big part of the quilt, stippling all over is so hmmm, thread colours are amazing, and can change the look of a quilt so quickly, and a fun design can thrill and excite!
Now to order some threads, I have some Superior Thread colour charts, and want some more exciting colours -even flourescents. I did do big order when I quilted a fantastic piece for a QQ raffle quilt a few years ago. Now I need more.
The shops in greater Brisbane only stock king Tut and some Bottom Line (inthe superior range) -not the full range of colours, and not even a small stock of any of the rest of the Superior range -sadly.
I wonder if they realise that there is more than King Tut? I find it too thick and unwieldy, and the colours are dull. Bottom Line can excite and is so fine it can bring zing to my quilts. Also sadly I have been told that it is "bobbin fill" and "you can't use it on the top". Ha ha , I will use what I want and you just lost my business..
Now as my friend Sue says I should work in a series, maybe this is it......
