Missouri Star Quilt Company is selling their own brand of thread.
I ordered a few spools last week and they arrived yesterday.
The thread colors in theTrusty Trio are black, white and ivory.
I am very interested in using the ivory, which looks like a very light silver to my eyes.
I ordered a brown cotton called Nestles and
a Burgandy polyester for embroidery work.
I wanted the Summer edition of Block to add to my quilting library.
I want to make the Summer in the Park quilt using the Island Batiks in my collection.
You can find the online tutorial for the quilt HERE.

What I like about Block are the short narrative stories about life with the Doans.
I took advantage of a sale at Accuquilt and purchased
the die for Blazing Star.
I am thinking of Christmas gifts using this pattern.
I would not cut these pieces by hand, so this block would never have been made.
But this will be so much better.
I got the 6" mat in order to cut one shape out of a multi shaped die.
I saw a video about this so the larger mats don't get cut marks where no fabric is placed.
It will save my larger mats.
Have a bit of tidying to do and the AQS show to attend before I begin these projects.
