As promised I am here to tell you about this fabulous thread I got in my little mail box. In fact it was so awesome that I heard music coming from my mailbox a block away (for real) :)
My one and only experience with Superior Threads before, was a donut that my good friend Pam loaned me to finish my pony applique. It was a lot of fun to use, and it's now on my shopping list.
I was excited to have the opportunity to play around with some superior threads, on a new project I started for a swap.
The thread I used was Masterpiece by Alex Anderson. To be honest a little fear crept over me, being that I have used the same gutterman thread in my smaller viking since I purchased it 3 years ago. As I wound up the bobbin and got ready to tackle some paper piecing, I was pleasantly surprised how smooth my stitches were. This machine is a workhorse that doesn't like change. (ok so it's really just me) I could almost hear the breath of fresh air coming from her and she accepted the new thread. (I'm Corny, I know. Yes I talk to my machine)
I got this weird idea a few weeks ago to make spools for my partners sewing machine cover, but in a more 3D version. After paper piecing these with the new thread, I pulled out some floss and kept the thread theme going with a little thread detail. The floss and thread sang together wonderfully and I continued to sew....
I could go on forever about how much my little workhorse loved this new thread, and I am excited to try it in my quilting machine as well.
Now I will show you what I have for you now, I am sure the suspense is hard to take.. Superior Threads has also sent a little something for you. Two spools of the Masterpiece Thread by Alex Anderson in black and neutral. Great for piecing and fine quilting as well as applique. Each spool has 600 yards and is 3 ply extra-long staple Egyptian-grown cotton. I have paired it up with a few fat quarters, because everyone loves fabric, am I right?
Here is what you can win.
Leave a comment on this post with a comment on this thread (if you have used it before) or what you would try it on. A current project maybe?
Have fun with it .
Good luck and thank you Superior Threads for the AWESOME goodies. And to Cindy as well for inviting me to participate in this blog hop.
