Threads

I have recently discovered a love for colored threads, specifically for quilting.


Beautiful cotton sewing threads in colors other than beige, white, or grey. 


Rowan Threads have been specifically designed to coordinate with Amy Butler's Love and Soul Blossoms (yet to be released) fabric collections, as well as Kaffe Fassett's Stones and Circus collection.


There are nine spools (200 yards each) of premium cotton thread for each of the collections, packaged in adorable (recycled) boxes.  They looks so beautiful in their packaging,  I do however intend on using these threads soon.

  11. just finished my first machine quilted quilt! I personally find using white or beige a tad bit boring so used red thread for the quilting (matching my fabric of course) and it turned out great and I don't know why in the heck I waited so long ... been doing everything by hand!
    Love your blog! look forward to reading your posts!

  15. I love those thread sets! I think I am going to do some machine quilting in red, in addition to hand quilting.

    I am having a little trouble with the voile puckering - did this happen to you? I blogged about it in hopes to hear some help - Rachel (from stitched in color) suggested I use a microtex needle? Since this is my first quilt, I am just so nervous I am going to mess it up! : )
