What are some of my fave Superior Threads products?  I could not live without my..........

Magnifico, Fantastico and the Titanium-Coated Topstitch Needles

 Because these titanium-coated needles have an ultra thin coat of titanium nitride, they will stay sharper longer and outlast any current Topstitch needle on the market.

Fantastico is the name of Superior Threads variegated polyester threads.  I used them to straight line quilt my quilted jacket and the also the one I made for my mom.


Fantastico is a pleasure to free motion quilt with.  This is a close up of my Fox Kits quilt.  The tree was quilted in a wood grain pattern.  And Fantastico helped to bring the leaves to life!


Magnifico is another favourite of mine.  I used these to quilt my Modern Charm quilt.


This spiraled and echoed quilting was performed using the walking foot.

Sunday Stash

It has been a loooo-nnnn-gggg time since I shared a Sunday Stash post.
All the way back to April.

It's not that I haven't purchased anything since then.  I either just stash them away or cut right into them.  But they really are photo worthy.  Sew here goes!

I have been stocking up on Kona Cotton Solids from Mad About Patchwork for months now.  I am trying to keep a snip of each fat quarter accumulated.  The name of each colour is included on the snippet and I plan to somehow organize them to be able to reorder more whenever I think of a new project to use those yummy solids in.

My last order included quite a few one yard cuts of some of my fave colours.  Perhaps I will choose another colour combination to remake my Ohio Stars in Solids quilt.

The pattern is now for sale in my Etsy shop and in my Craftsy pattern store.

Somehow this cute combination for a "backing and binding someday" also ended up on my last order.  From the Snug As A Bug collection, Words in Cream and Snails in Aqua, both by Melly & Me for Riley Blake Designs.


Really.  I do love text prints.  And aqua.  And those little bitty snails.



Other fabric acquisitions include this little "something special" for the backing and binding on my Wild Life quilt top.  I searched online and found these two cute prints from Fabric Spot.  What great service... Ordered on the holiday Monday (Canada Thanksgiving) - they were delivered on Wednesday!  And I love them!


For the backing, from the Forest Friends collection designed by Ingrid Slyder for Moda - Forest Friends Toss in Pebble.  And for the binding - Forest Friends Birch Trees also in Pebble.



Sometimes you just can't find everything you want - all in one place.  From the Just My Type collection by Patty Young for Michael Miller Fabrics, we have a large chunk of Letterpress in Multi from Mad About Patchwork.  And two clever binding options, Color Keys in Breeze and in Multi, both from Fabric Spot.


And just for good measure.  Some dots.  You can never go wrong with Polka Dots.

Wild Life - A Finished Top!

Lions and tigers and BEARS!  Oh, DEER!

This top, made from Kona cotton solids, was such a fun project to design and make.  Although I was originally going to go for a blue background, the Sprout, Lime and Peridot greens won out.  But I think pink would have been cute, too!


This little top finished at approximately 42” x 54” - the perfect size for baby or toddler.


Wanting to pick something special for the backing, I searched online and found these two cute prints from Fabric Spot.  What great service... Ordered on the holiday Monday (Canada Thanksgiving) - they were delivered on Wednesday!  And I love them!


For the backing, from the Forest Friends collection designed by Ingrid Slyder for Moda - Forest Friends Toss in Pebble.  And for the binding - Forest Friends Birch Trees also in Pebble.

Those little critters are absolutely adorable!  As you know... I have a fondness for foxes.  But those brown bears, grey raccoons and green leaves coordinate beautifully with the Wild Life top.  And I can hardly wait to see how the birch tree print will look as the binding.

Just have to get this basted and decide how to quilt it.....  



Linking up to Finish it up Friday with Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts....
And TGIFF! hosted this week with Janet at Simply Pieced.







Enjoy your weekend!
