Thread Inspiration

I love color!  I find these threads VERY inspiring.  I needed the rest of the colors.  So I don't have all the browns and grays, but I don't tend to quilt in those colors often anyways.  But now I have all the blues, and reds, and yellows, and greens, see what I mean!  It makes for a happy quilter!

Here's the whole stash.  This is Glide by Hab + Dash.  It's a forty weight poly and I love to use it for machine applique stitches.  This is the whole collection stored in boxes by color so I can quickly grab what I need if I'm going sewing somewhere away from home.

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. Wow that is a lot of thread! So many pretty colors. I'm sure it would be a lot of fun to play with it.

  2. Hmmm, I need to learn more about "crossover" thread possibilities! I have some Glide thread for my longarm machine but hadn't thought of using it for machine appliqué. I also have quite the horde of Isacord 40 weight machine embroidery thread, and I've used that on my longarm machine in a pinch and it behaves and looks very similar to Glide. Ah, the possibilities!!
