We've started a Quilt Along with several talented ladies, and these are the results of our first month! Every month, we'll be featuring a new thread and our group of Quilt Along participants will use it in their own quilts. The differences in personal style while using the same thread is always interesting and inspiring to see.
Here are the results of Master Quilter™, a 40wt cottonized polyester thread.

Pieced the top using 50wt Konfetti cotton thread and started quilting using Master Quilter.
Mandy is a pattern designer, author, teacher, and longarmer who used to be a classical archaeologist, believing the work of our hands is what connects us to who we are as human beings, and crosses over time and place.
Mandy’s favorite thing about quilting is that lightning bolt of an idea, nurtured and realized until it is a completed piece. Her inspiration for this piece is our National Parks and standing up for what's right.
Used Master Quilter, 50wt Tutti cotton and 40wt Spotlite metallic thread.
Angela used the APQS Quilt Path to build a panto and the merged it with a circle and used 3 different threads. She loved that she could easily switch between 40wt Poly, 12wt cotton and Metallic with very few issues. Her plan is to create a bunch of these and then use the 100wt InvisaFil to fill the background, keeping the style modern and about the thread.
I have loved being a long arm quilter for over 6 years! This career has evolved to include a Sales Rep and Teacher for APQS Canada, and the Long Arm Advisor for Wonderfil Threads. I love every aspect of quilting, piecing to binding, and sharing my knowledge in classes and on line, and teach and work out of my Long Arm Jo’s quilting studio in Leduc, Alberta.
This fabric is “snow dyed” from my collection several years ago. The pattern is a design from Sue Patton, traced onto the fabric with a blue wash away pen. Stitched with two colours of Master Quilter: MQ09, Dark Pink, and MQ51, Dark Sky Blue.
