Quilting and Binding Done

I finished the binding on my Spanish Tiles quilt this morning. Amie Potter did a beautiful job quilting it, as usual. It's so nice to have a wonderful friend who does wonderful quilting. Thank you Amie! I just hand over my quilts to her and she does her thing. Love it!!

It will be nice to have a new Spanish Tiles hanging in my booth. Seems the colors are perfect for this time of year. I am vending at a show in Santa Barbara this weekend and looking forward to visiting the area.

Sorry about the photos. The light was really bad in my house today.

Amie quilted my big Diamond quilt and I have sewn on the binding by machine. I still have to do the hand stitching and then can't wait to post a photo. Maybe next week.

Something Different

I have been busy making some little padded notebooks. Sometimes I have to get away from quilting. You guys know how that it is. Anyway I listed them in my Etsy shop.

I have made a bunch more. I will be listing those later in the week.

A Tangled Mess? I Think Not!

Can you believe this mess of thread?

I never have a problem pulling a cut length of thread from this. IT DOES NOT TANGLE.

I love it! It's my very, very favorite thread!

Years ago, I bought this thread along with a few other colors from Quilt in a Day, and they still have it! It will last me a lifetime.

It is sold by a company called Levine Bros. I think it was originally meant for the tailoring industry. But I use it for hand sewing my bindings. It comes already waxed. I just cut a slit in the bag, and cut all the thread in half at one end. Then I just pull a length out one at a time. It absolutely never tangles on me. There are 675 yards in one package.......probably enough to last your lifetime also.

By the way, I have no recollection of why my white thread is not in it's bag. All the others colors are still tucked away in their bags. It is a mystery to me!

The Stitching Lines Giveaway is now closed.
I am afraid this has been the worst attended giveaway on the internet. BooHoo!
Anyway, Drumroll....... The winner is Joyful Quilter!

Joy, send me your address and I will send you the Stitching Lines.
Thank you Joy for mentioning my Stitching Lines on your blog. I expect to see tons more Half-Square triangle quilts on your blog!!!
And a Big Thank you to everyone else who blogged about my Giveaway and to all those who came and looked.

This last weekend we spent a few days in Big Bear.

Most of the time my feet were up on a chair out on the deck. I got a lot of reading done.

This was my view when I looked up.

And here is a tree trunk that I snapped a picture of just because I loved all the texture.
