Whispering in your ear

fanderson_whispering
I have been talking about threads so far this month and will continue to share thread ideas and information with you all month. I just want you to understand that the opinions stated in this blog are my own, and – I approve this ad.

In other words I am sharing with you what I LIKE and use. You really have to try these products out and see if you like them too. There are lots of other products out on the market that are great.

I just don’t use them.

I wanted to share with you some of the places that I use the different threads I have talked about and will be talking about.

I have used a variegated Aurifil thread on the inside of the Pine boughs of Whispering Pines.

I used my favorite 30wt rayon on the silk in the background behind the Pines and then I again used the solid color 50wt Aurifil cotton in the border areas of the stripy units of this quilt.

Three different threads for three different results.

This quilt won Judge’s choice at IQA in Houston 2007. It is made with my varigated  hand dyed cotton and silk charmeuse fabrics. As you can imagine, I was so happy.

This is the quilt I carried a picture of around with me for months when I first moved to Las Vegas. I had gotten rid of most of my furniture in MN and wanted this to be my color scheme! I love it!!!!! I did get a yellowey green sofa, 2 orange chairs, Had a yellow cabinet built, got a rug with lots of the colors in it and have some purple and turquoise accents!!!

I love that quilt, and it's color scheme, as well as the fact that you approved this ad. lol

I've got a Madeira Treasure Chest with 40 wt rayon threads that are beautiful, but I can see where the 30 wt might be even better and more easily seen.

As for the Aurifil threads, I can't say enough good things about them. They are my favorites.
