I do need to post about that third order.... but I need to come clean first.
Oh, King Tut! Please forgive me! I was swayed by the charms of another. It was so brilliantly blue, so deep, so rich.... with a luscious sheen. And the shop didn't have you in any blues! So... I did it. I bought another thread, even though I was unsure. The shop owner swore if I'd just go slowly and use a 90 or 100 needle, it would be perfect. I had my doubts... but I did it. I bought it anyway.
I used it yesterday for the first time. I went slowly. I used a 100, just to be on the safe side. There I was, part way down a line of quilting... when SNAP!!! Tried it again and SNAP! And ... SNAP! again. This blog is rated "G" for general audiences, so... well, you know how they show steam coming out of peoples' ears in cartoons? There you go.
I'll never leave you again, King. Well... OK, there are a couple others I'll leave you for temporarily, but not for this kind!!!
As The Who sang... We Won't Get Fooled Again!
I did manage to quilt down either side of my "stripes" on the bag using the blue, and along one end, but the rest will be the VERY wonderful variegated King Tut #926, "Red Sea" on the right, above. Pinks to reds, thank you very much.
I foresee a trip to a well-stocked quilt shop to load up on the King! Forgive me, King?
Thanks for reading,
