Sets a Record

This quilt set a personal record for the most thread changes on a quilt. Sorry for the blurry photo.

Isn't it a beauty? My customer, also my next door neighbor, designed the border and corner blocks. I think they really set off the quilt.

These are most of the threads that I used. Some I had already put away.

 You would think that with as many threads as I have I'd be able to make a perfect match to every fabric on earth. Sadly, this was not so. I was able to make close matches to most of the fabrics, but some of them I'm not completely happy with the match.

My goal was to provide texture to the quilt, but not interfere too much with the beauty of the piecing. I'm hoping to get the quilt to Norma soon. Hopefully, she will like the results.
