Many colours in our lives have special significance. Some colours reflect age old traditions and some reflect new and exciting trends.
I am the proud owner of a red, white and blue quilt. When I moved away from the Midwest in America, my quilting friends made this delightful quilt. It came with plenty of room for signatures and thoughtful phrases.
Today when I consider making a quilt with red, white and blue fabrics, Aurifil’s variegated threads spring immediately to mind as they give me several choices.
I can use these traditional fabric colours with Aurifil Mako Cotton Colour #3852
For a more modern look, I match the colours in the Mako Cotton Colour #4647.
The next time you want to remember a place or an event with a quilt, try matching your Aurifil thread colour to a Holiday themed quilt or a country’s flag. I’m off right now to gather my red, white and blue fabrics for an Independence Day or maybe a Bastille Day quilt …..
