This is the first of my patterns I'm making available for INSTANT Digital Purchasing.. woohoo! I've been wanting to do this for a long time. What's better than wanting to start and being able to just click, buy and print!

For this aqua fabric I selected sevearl threads to try. Pulling a single strand out I set all the spools to take a look at them. I like seeing several threads at once to decide which direction I want to take this for either applique or quilting.

A slightly darker Teal

One thing I like to share is using Go To Colors so you can slowly build up your thread collection. Use a range of Gray on cool tone fabrics. Like this sample. The Gray on the left and the Aqua on the right area almost the same in this photo, so you can see how using those go to colors is effective.
And a range of brown to tan for warm fabrics. It is amazing how well these Go To colors work.
Which Thread color would you go with?
This is my Perfect Box of Neutrals kit with Aurifl. Let's look under the hood!
All the shades.. these blenders do the job for you and are wonderful for piecing, machine quilting and machine applique.
