Sharon's Surprise Quilt | Sharon Keightley Quilts

The symposium starts this week, with the quilt exhibition open tomorrow and classes starting on Wednesday. 

I have been busy getting organized for the class I am teaching on Sunday, and looking forward to catching up with old friends and making new ones.

I am teaching applique, the sample quilt being Sharon's surprise from my new book Autumn Bouquet.

Happy Stitching

When starting my journey with invisible machine applique these are the threads I used too. Now of course there are so many wonderful threads available, many of them suitable. The only thing that may be of concern is that you need a variety of colours, with monopoly smoke and clear threads there are only two colour choices, therefore limiting how many colours you need.
