I'm not very adventuresome when it comes to using different threads in my longarm. I have a group of threads that work well for me and I'm intolerant of pokies so I hadn't bothered to try the Superior King Tut variegated thread even though Deb raved about how much she loved it. I bought a spool (or two) at MQS and it was just perfect for this UFO.
I've got great tension even with using a beige permacore thread in the bobbin and a variegated green King Tut in the top - no pokies - and the colors in the King Tut thread are really subtle and suit this scrap quilt well.
The pantograph is Lush Leaves from Lorien Quilting.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes...I'm not sure why I'm letting being alone on my birthday get me down - it probably has to do with other things going on in my life right now. On Monday, I think I'll take Jeanne's advice and visit a nearby quilt shop (that I didn't know existed) and treat myself to lunch.
