Happy Friday y'all!
Last night, on impulse, I started a new baby quilt. I've had my eye on Hoosier Toni's Star Flare tutorial and took a look through my stash to see what I could use. I found a yard of some Indian Summer fabric and went from there.
This morning I popped over to a local quilt shop to get enough fabric for the outer ring and just finished it up.
I've never made such large half square triangles before!
Just need a backing now.
So, I've made the switch to Aurifil threads (I've used Gutermann up to this point). Unless you've been living under a rock you may have noticed that it's all the rage now. I was skeptical at first as to whether it was really worth it or not so I ordered a few spools of the 50wt to give it a try. The first thing I noticed was a little less lint and my bobbin was lasting a lot longer! I found an online shop that has it at a great price and after all things considered it's only a tiny bit more than buying Gutermann from JoAnns with a coupon. It's probably cheaper when you get a cone (I'm not doing the exact math on this!) and it's really convenient when you use a TON of thread. Plus, since I sell most of my quilts I feel good knowing I'm using high quality thread.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
