Happy Mother's Day to all of the Mom's - expecting Mom's - want-to-be Mom's and Mother-in-Laws out there! xo!
What did I do today? I went to a quilt show and purchased a few Mother's Day pressies for myself!
Yummy aren't they! These are all Fil-Tec threads that I am looking forward to quilting with. The large cones are Glide the smaller are the variegated Affinity and the bobbins are the magna-glide magnetic core bobbins with a whopping 132 yds on each bobbin! I am really looking forward to trying these out. I really liked using the Glide thread on Phoebe and was very pleased with it so when I knew that the dealer would be at this show it just gave me another reason to get to a quilt show and buy some more!
Fil-Tec threads are all a 40 weight trilobal polyester thread that is strong (but not too strong) smooth and has wonderful colours and a shine that just makes the thread melt into the fabric. I loved it for machine quilting - no thread breaks :-D
Isn't that green just yummy? I have no clear destination for that thread but how could I leave it there!!?
Just had to share my quilter's candy!
