The one thing that ALL patchworkers have in common is scrap fabric. Some discard their scraps and others collect and save them as precious fabric morsels. I consider my scrap collection as somewhere in between.
I will however save my scrap organization methods for another blog because I have just finished a ‘scrapy’ quilt top and I want to talk about my thread choice for quilting.
The block pattern is ‘Square in a Square’ and each block is color co-ordinated with itself.
I had just enough blue fabric left over from another project to make sashing strips and enough brown print for the setting squares. Aurifil 28wt Cotton Mako thread in colour 2735 is, I think, the perfect match for the sashing.
I am hand quilting a 1/4″ from all the seams and I think it will look just fine.
How do you choose a quilting thread colour for your scrapy quilts?
