Quilting It Up Today

The Irish Chain Twist Quilt-A-Long Grand Parade is on Thursday, Yippee!!!  So of course, I am just starting to quilt mine today ;)  I just loaded the quilt top and back on the long arm and I plan to quilt, and quilt, and quilt until it is done ;)

My plan is to do some custom quilting using a variety of colors to match my piecing.  I am using my favorite 402 Pearl So Fine Thread by Superior Threads for the background because it just blends so perfectly and will quilt a smallish basic meandering stitch ;)  Then on the print fabrics, I am going to use Magnifico Thread in matching colors!!!   Magnifico is a extra strength, polyester thread that has a beautiful High Sheen to it that will give the quilting on my prints that extra pop!!  I just love it, seriously, you should give it a try sometime and you will see what I mean ;)

And don't worry, if you are in this same Irish Chain Twist Quilt-A-Long procrastination boat with me ;)  We still have 4 days and this is your friendly reminder.  So if you are trying to finish piecing it up by Thursday to enter it into the grand prize linky, pull out those blocks and get sewing ;)  You can do it!!!   And if you are quilting it up for the Parade, get stitching, you can do it!!!   Can't wait to see all of your beautiful finishes!!!

Pin It!


  1. We're sisters! I used that thread for the first time yesterday and really, really like it! And #402 is my go to thread or most projects. :) Have fun quilting, I'm looking forward to seeing what you do.

  2. 402 is one of my favorites. Looking forward to see how you quilt it.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
