A perfect winter activity

The batting has been joined to make the right size for the quilt.....

....and the layers all pinned together. Such tedious jobs but now it's ready for some hand quilting which is the perfect activity on a cold winters evening. What better way to keep warm with a pretty quilt draped over my lap. I couldn't get the right colours in the Perle thread so I have a mixture of threads and we will see how we go. If anyone has a good source of Perle threads please let me know. Locally would be good but I'm willing to go further a field if the price is right. So frustrating when you can't get what you want. Grrrrr

I like getting those kinds of jobs out of the way. So good. You're on your way now! I bet you it'll look amazing despite the thread issue.

Have you used the batting tape? It is WONDERFUL for attaching batting pieces together.

I'll take my Bliss in and have a look to see if there's a better match here. Will be in touch. What colours you after? One in each of the solids?

I love the colours you have chosen to hand quilt with. They look perfect. Enjoy your hand quilting. At least you should be warm.

Jill, thanks for letting me know about the shop:) I have just had a look but unfortunately they won't send and threads to New Zealand :( I presume its the postage costs.
