Unless you are incredibly organized, art quilt supplies have a way of, umm, mingling 😂. So, before your Valentine-making session (some of my friends have parties to do just this- why leave all of the fun to the kids?)…corral everything in ❤️ colors in one spot.
Aurifil thread boxes are a great start…I’ve pulled red, pink, white and purple in different weights and fibers. Fabric: find blenders that will play nicely with novelty ❤️-themed fabrics. Cording to finish small art quilts is a must. Any Angelina in the right shade? (Mine has migrated to the bottom of one of my art supply drawers, which is the studio equivalent of going into the witness protection program…)
Did you discover any new elements in Houston? Those little spools of purple and red are actually tubular metallic ribbon…my discovery this last year.
As you do this, you’ll likely keep thinking of other bits to keep handy…I just remembered a handful of red silk threads from a silk dupioni project! And, make sure you have enough of the essentials such as MistyFuse on hand!
See you tomorrow…💞
