Today I'm sharing some of the new supplies I recently purchased to get going on my Catherine Quilt.
I'm constantly in awe at the plethora of information you can find on the Internet if you just take the time to search...and search...and search. A recent favorite tip I learned is that all cotton thread is good to use if you're using all natural fabrics like cotton and linen. All of the fibers should shrink fairly the same when laundered. Who knew?
I picked up these all cotton, size 5 bundles of thread at JoAnn's. I'm loving the thicker yarns on some quilts I've pinned lately. I'm thinking long stitches, rather simple and straight in nature. Nothing intricate for me. You can see some samples on my Catherine Quilt Inspiration Board and my Quilts Board.
