Got MY Thread

So I had this string quilt on my frame when I ran out of my Signature thread.  I finally found it on Amazon, it was the last one they had in the color I needed.  So I ordered it and it finally got here today.  Now I am just hoping that the 500 yard spool will be enough for me to finish this quilt.  Thank you all for your suggestions as to where I might be able to purchase this thread.

So I started to quilt and guess what I found?  A small hole in one of the fabrics.  So now I do not know what to do.

I am not sure if Fray Check will work, but I plan on giving it a try.  I think it will be too difficult to take out the piece and replace it.  I guess we always run into problems no matter what we do...I may just have to learn to live with it.

OMG! Has It Been That Long?

I cannot believe how long it has been since I last posted.  I am a bit embarrassed. I have been trying to catch up on my reading list. I have missed hearing about what is going on in everyone's lives.  As for myself, I have been working on a few things.  My latest quilt in-progress quilt is this:

I do not know what it is called, but it is a two block quilt. I am almost halfway done...just a few more rows to go. 

On another note, I have finished quilting and binding my Summer Series Quilt.  I know I am a bit slow (I started this over the summer), but it's done! YAY!

This picture does not do it justice.  It is really vibrant in person.  I ended up using black and white fabrics for the sashing and borders.  I think it makes all the solids stand out.

I also finished quilting and binding the Crazy Log Cabin quilt.

I was not sure if this quilt was ever going to get finished because it was so wonky, but it turned out just fine.  I did not have bumps and lumps, it actually laid out flat and was very easy to quilt.

I currently have a string quilt on my frame, but would you believe I ran out of thread and I am having a difficult time finding the color?  If anyone has any ideas as to where to look, I would greatly appreciate it.  It is a 100% cotton Signature "Golden Harvest" variegated thread.   

Hope everyone is having a blast sewing and quilting...
