Today's prompt for #IGQuiltfest is THREAD! My favorite is Aurifil of course.
I recently found that there is White & Black Bobbin thread available. I love the Verigated also. For piecing, white or cream 40 Wt.

I made this Mini in 2009 for a Quilt Festival Challenge. It's a favorite because of the fabrics I used. Quilter's Shades by Hancock Fabrics, hence the Name and the Sunglasses. Pun intended. It hangs in the stairway to my Quilt Zone.

Rolling your Quilts to save big creases in them. It makes them easier to view from the shelf also. Pretty side out! These are my small quilts in my Closet. Re-roll as needed.

I own a couple of irons. My favorite is the one I take to Retreats. It was recommended to me by Bonnie Hunter in 2014. Sunbeam travel size iron purchased at Target. My bigger iron is a SHARK! I bought it at BiMart. My best tip is to use a Wool mat and Best Press.

Everyone should know the answer to my #favoritecolor. Since my Momma painted my bedroom ceiling Lavender, it's been PURPLE!! Since Donny Osmond's purple socks, Since School colors were Purple and Gold. Not just because I'm OLD!! #IGQuiltfest

CIRCA 2015 - This Strippy Stars Quilt was made from All Solids. It was my 1st Kid's Class Pattern with Grandma's Quiltin Design. I taught the class at Walla Walla Sew Vac and Spas. 4 days stitching during Spring Break with 3 Young girls. Fun! My Love of Shadow Play solids started with this quilt.
