utility quilting

A utility quilt is not really a showstopper quilt. So as I was sitting in the library grumbling about a July deadline and hand quilting a queen size utility top, two people looked at me and said "Oh, honey, don't use that kind of thread. Use pearl cotton."

Pearl cotton is a more like a type of yarn; it's twisted unlike embroidery floss which you can pick apart. And then Beth, who is always ready to drive anywhere and drives this monster of a truck said, let's go shopping! And then I got the call that my paperwork was finally in so I could sub. Sweet!  

You can really see the cotton against the black squares; it gives this lovely pop effect. I'll be done in no time.
