WIP Leapday + a Giveaway


Happy Leap Day! We’ve got an extra day this year to work on WIPs—I think that’s worth celebrating, don’t you? So today I’m taking part in the Leap Day Superior Threads Giveaway. Scroll down for a chance to win three spools of King Tut thread.But first things first: I had a (mostly) productive week! Since I finished my solids quilt last week, I’ve been in the mood to check things off the list.

Completed projects:
Bee blocks. See my post here.

New projects:

Log cabin quilt. Nothing like some colorful, quick, easy blocks to raise spirits on a dreary February day, right? I cranked out five of these blocks the other day!

Ongoing projects:
Do. Good Stitches Asterisk quilt – I’m making four blocks for this quilt, and I’ve finished two of the four. I’d like to complete this top before switching my focus back to my Challenge mini quilt. (Note to self: Try pressing blocks before photographing them! Yikes!)
Challenge mini quilt – I’m sorry to say that this project is making me very sad right now. So I’m avoiding it by working on my Do Good Stitches Asterisk quilt. : )
No progress:
• Gen X Quilters’ Charmed Prints QA
• Halloween quilt
• Farmer’s Wife QA
• Figgy Pudding quiltThis week’s stats:

When Cindy and Elizabeth contacted me about doing a Superior Threads giveaway, I was happy to take part. I have some experience with Superior’s King Tut line, so I already knew it’s good stuff. In fact, at the LQS where I’ve rented a long-arm quilting machine a few times, they actually require King Tut to be used with the long-arm (they say it’s the brand that’s easiest on the machine, which gets very heavy use, as you can imagine). King Tut is beautiful thread for quilting, and it comes in an amazing range of variegated colors!

Beyond King Tut, I didn’t know much about Superior’s offerings until recently. I’m impressed by the wide variety of threads they offer—they have a thread for every type of piecing and quilting out there. I also got a chance to try out Alex Anderson’s Masterpiece thread, which I used last night for piecing my asterisk blocks. It’s fabulous—no snagging, fraying or breakage here.

Want to try some King Tut for yourself? I’ve got three lovely spools of it up for grabs, in the colors shown above. Just leave a comment on this post, and I’ll choose a random winner of all three spools on Friday morning.

    I also have a Valentine's project that made me sad. So it's sitting alone by itself in the dark to think about what it's done. I think it'll mend it's way for Mother's Day, hopefully 🙂

    Does glow-in-the-dark thread in your quilt keep you awake at night? Or, does it just provide enough light to find you way to the bathroom at 3:00 AM?

    Hi, I absolutely love Superior Threads! I decided a couple of months ago that I needed a better thread if my piecing and quilting were going to get to the next level! I just finised a queen size quilt with Bottom Line and had absolutely NO problems…no lint, no snags, no birds nest nothing negative.I've not tried the Kind Tut yet so if I win that will be like getting a diamond ring from my husband LOL No really I would love to try it. Thank you again for such a great give away!

    Your blog is neat and I enjoy reading it. Would love to try this brand of superior thread. I've tried Masterpiece and enjoyed working with that!
