The lovely people of Westminster were kind enough to send me these beautiful boxes of thread. One box with colors picked by Amy Butler and one by Kaffe Fassett.
I love to look at them, they are so pretty, but I'll admit that when I first got them I thought to myself "ohh... so pretty! But I don't know what I'd use them for..." As a quilter, my piecing thread is off white and so is 95% of my quilting thread. And we all know that we go through tons and tons of thread when quilting, there was no way I could use one of these lovely spools to quilt - I'd run out so quickly!
BUT! Then some time passed and I made a few quilts and I found myself returning to these pretty boxes over and over wondering "is there the perfect color for stitching my binding?" And the answer has consistently been yes! The wonderful colors are clearly right in my modern quilting comfort zone as without even trying, they are perfect matches for my bindings, time and again.
100% cotton and all amazing colors I highly recommend these pretty little boxes filled with beautiful thread.
Ever since I got them, they have come to my binding stitching rescue over and over!
