I am working on a Pensacola Quilt Guild challenge; each quilter was given a 5″ square. The challenge is that in the quilt you make, you must only use the colors you find in that 5″ square. Actually, there were a lot of colors to work with, or at least, there were a lot of colors I work with often. I can’t show you the quilt yet. 🙂
When I went to quilt it, I had to go through all four boxes of threads. Four boxes you ask?
My Kuwaiti quilting friend helped me organize my quilting room; we went to Daiso, a Japanese dollar-store like shop, and found just the right boxes, two very flat boxes for “shiny threads” and two larger boxes for piecing threads and flatter, more matte threads.
Everyone has his or her own system. My machine quilting threads are Hot or Cool; cool mostly referring to colors of the sea, I seem to do a lot of those. My piecing threads are Colors of the Sea and Everything Else, LOL.
Or at least that’s what I thought until I started to write this entry. Looking at all my threads in these photos, I discovered that they are all either blue/green/purple or they are everything else. I guess it shows me where my priorities are. 🙂
