Hi - Sorry to ask such a basic question, but do i use a specific thread for quilting ? Thanks.


Thanks for the painters tape tip. Painters tape is the duct tape of women. Love that stuff. I love your tutorial, too. Thank you so much.


I was planning on vertical lines echoing the columns, too! Great minds think alike. Thanks again for such a fun, quick little project.
I see a Tempest in my future also.


Me too. Since I see these columns as tall city buildings with lights, the vertical lines were my first choice.

I have some new silk thread from Superior that I want to try on this.


I so love straight line quilting. It's so classic. What sewing machine do you use? Just curious, I'm researching buying a new one and want to get an idea of whether people like the one they have.

Hi Kathy,

I have a Bernina 440, as well as a Brother 1500 straight stitch machine...both are great to work with.

I bought a walking foot two years ago, but have been too scared to try it. I hand quilted a project last year because I was afraid to mess it up using the machine. Perhaps I will take the plunge soon. Thanks for sharing. Your quilt is beautiful!


Quilted and ready for binding. I love the masking tape tip. I used 2 widths of tape for my vertical lines. Can't wait til Tuesday!

Hi All done. I too hadn't used my walking foot but i took the plunge and it turned out ok. I too have a Bernina 440 and am very pleased with it. The only thing that i might not have got right was the stitch length - i couldn't seem to alter that, other than that i will always use this foot now for quilting the top. Thanks for making me feel that i should try it!


what a perfect little quilt! like a wonderful piece of pound cake, or a sugar cookie---just enough but not too much. I make baby quilts for a local charity, and have been casting about for a new pattern to use, as I like my charity quilts to be both lovely and relaxing and flexible about fabric choice. This is perfect!


Hi I just found this blog post. I love this quilt! I have been trying so hard to find a link to the original post and pattern but I'm having trouble. Could you please point me in the right direction?


I found the link. Thank you!
