I totally forgot to thank Jen from Little Scraps of Happiness for the thread. She mailed me this thread a couple weeks ago. Her machine didn't like it, so she offered it to me. I used it to quilt my grandmother's quilt (see previous post) and my machine seems to like it. Haven't tried doing free-motion with it yet. The thread is Sulky, 100% cotton.
Remember these? I won them from Sew Take A Hike last month. I decided to use them for the house blocks which are my March UFO.
Together. The quilt doesn't call for sashing but I think I am going to add it. I was thinking green since I didn't pull any greens from my stash to use with the blocks. These still need to be ironed and I have 7 more houses to go. My goal has changed from having the whole quilt complete to having all 9 houses done and sashing decided. I only have a couple days left, so we'll see what I can actually get done. The finished size of these blocks are 16 inches. You can find the patterns for these houses, here.
