I was the lucky winner of one of Afton's (@Quilting Mod) giveaways recently. She has been super generous the past couple weeks with giveaways and sharing photos from Quilt Market. For those of us who weren't able to attend Quilt Market, the photos shared by Afton let us get a peek at the newest fabrics, latest trends and even a lot of gorgeous quilts!
When I saw the giveaway for thread, I was thrilled! But when I saw it was Cotton + Steel thread I began to drool a little! Early this year I saw that Cotton + Steel was partnering with Sulky to create a line of thread. I was intrigued then and hoped to one day see it and try it. That day came with five pretty 50wt spools of cotton thread. I'm looking forward to trying each and every color!
And speaking of color, notice that each plastic spool is a different color. Clever! And exciting! I can imagine all the Cotton + Steel junkies are beside themselves!
Also included was a big stack of selvages. Each one generously cut with the C+S 'magic' include on each and every selvage. I rarely save selvages. If solids had selvage coolness, then I would. This stack will merge with my puny stack and hopefully I can one day explore a project using them all!
And who doesn't need a tote?! Thank you Afton, thank you Cotton + Steel! I'm a very happy girl!
