You probably know that I'm not a fan of purple, but this quilt includes quite a bit of it. (And I still like it. Haha!)
Tara gifted this lovely box of Anna Maria Horner threads many years ago. I always felt like the threads were "too good to use", so I used them very sparingly. When I realized that the they matched my quilt to a T, I knew I HAD to hand quilt it. I'm so glad I did! It was relaxing to sit down and hand quilt after sitting at the sewing machine for several hours each day.
Plus, the texture of a hand-quilted quilt is hard to beat!
I've had some questions about my upcoming events, so I thought I would mention a bit about that today, too.
Check out my website to see where I will visiting throughout the rest of this year. In a few weeks, I will be giving a keynote speech and teaching a class at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts in Cedarburg. You can read more about it and sign up here, if you are so inclined. It would be great to meet you if you are in the area!
