Yesterday I ran out of thread!
Look…I just had this last little corner bit to do before working on the borders!Fortunately I had wound several bobbins and have a couple left to work through. I’m hoping I can squeeze it out of them!
In the meantime I did find Aurifil at Linda Z’s in Arlington Heights. But unfortunately they did not carry the same weight I am using.
I bought what they had, as it is the same tri-color variegated thread but am hoping this difference in weight will not be noticeable. I’m using the green spool (40 wt) and Linda Z’s carries the orange spool (50 wt).
Does anyone know if there is an estimate chart for thread usage? Lesson learned here no doubt! For a King size quilt purchase 3000 meters of thread!
Til next time!
