  1. I have a lot! Make quilts with our church for Lutheran world relief. Working on one for my niece, one for my son, one for foster baby we have and one for myself. All while learning my new janome 9900 I won over at favecrafs!

  2. I plan to finish off the binding for my niece’s quilt. She’s studying at NYU to become a dentist…expensive schooling! Then my next quilt is a chevron quilt for my nephew’s baby due in a few months. It’s very quiet on the front: pale yellows, greys and whites, but I plan to have fun on the backing: bees and polka dots. The quilting will be spirals. I’m looking forward to that!

  3. I love Sulky threads. But living where we do in Minnesota I get tired of driving at least 30-45 minutes to be where I can shop for them.Wish we had a retailer locally but it is what it is. Now its back to quilting with the new sulky threads I picked up yesterday

  4. I am currently working on a kit, it has multiple blocks that need to be put together to make one block. There is 12 of these!! Can’t wait to et them finished, driving me crazy.

  5. What a fun giveaway! Just happens that I am working on Pineapple Sunshine applique quilt that calls for variegated thread to applique the pineapple bodies. Lots of choices in this collection! Thanks for the chance……

  6. I’ve got two I’m working on this weekend. One is a quilt for my husband’s boss (and friend) the other is my “year in review” quilt!! It’s a postage stamp quilt of all the material I’ve worked with this year….and its a lot!! So fun seeing all the fabrics again!!

  7. I am handsewing the binding to the back of a twin-sized quilt. Plus I’d like to start another table runner. I could really use this thread — I never seem to have the color I need!

  8. Working on two projects. Cutting out blocks for the “Curved Nine Patch” in polka dots and blenders…second cutting out Christmas ornaments for grandbabies tree.

  9. I am working on an original heart wreath wall hanging. Hoping to sell these to make my way to the World Peace Caravan in March 2014. I am proud to represent the USA in walking in the step of Queen of Sheba (Promise) to Jerusalem (City of Peace).

  10. I’m planning on doing Jenny Doan’s version of the disappearing 9 patch with window panes. I haven’t tried it yet, but thought it might be a fun way to make a quick throw for the recliner. After it’s put together, I want to do some thread painting on the flower prints. As long as it doesn’t end up being another UFO, I’ll be happy. :0)

  11. a quilt I started over a year ago for my grandson, who is now 16 mos. old, is on my to do list….I am having open heart surgery the end of this month and this will not be left unfinished…..LoL…..now I have truly committed myself on this project

  12. I’ve been busy haying and canning peaches this week, and am just dying to get at the sewing machine!!! I need a break/rest. lol We just received our first grandchild two months ago. I am working on her nursery. Cowboy desert theme. It includes a crib quilt, crib skirt, valance, and pillows. Other baby items can also be made, but for now this will do. The quilt and valance are finished. The skirt is almost done, and then I get to piece the pillow covers! I’m going to mix and match the material from the quilt to make matching pillows. It will be so much fun with all the choices! My younger daughter is also eager for me to make her quilt for her room. Browning/realtree themed.

  13. I’m making a Christmas quilt using Moda fabric designed by Deb Straincalled Countdown to Christmas. Another friend and I are making the same quilt. Given the wonky star points Sulky thread would greatly enhance the different blocks. Use Sulky thread in embroidering and love the variegated colors.

  14. I’m cutting out about a zillion 5″ squares in preparation for a vintage inspired postage stamp quilt. I’ve been collecting the vintage fabrics all year and it’s time to see some progress on this project!

  15. I just finished up my Amish Buggy Wheel quilt top from the workshop I took last spring. I ended up making 64 blocks instead of 47, so that I could make one of the other designs. I am planning on working on a 5 minute block quilt this weekend & making a super girl cape for my granddaughter.

  16. I’m always looking for blend colors to finish my quilts. I like the way the colors can either stand out or blend in. Thanks for a great selection. I’m working on several quilts now. Hope to finish one this weekend. Thanks again.

  17. I am working on a solar system quilt for my Grandson MAK. These cotton blendable colors would go beautiful with Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Earth , the Sun and the Moon………These colors are vibrant and out of this WORLD…………..

  18. I am hoping to get four quilt backs done so that I can get busy quilting them on my home machine. I love your threads and would love to win this. Thanks for this chance to win such a fun threads. Happy quilting everyone. Good luck to all.

  19. Just recycling old jeans by cutting them into a bunch of squares this weekend. No real plan yet. Only getting the jeans made into future quilting/sewing fabric (removing torn/worn/stained spots, recycling zippers if useful and pockets.)

  20. I have 3 projects that need finished up with bindings and quilting and starting some new applique/embroidery projects for my little ones. Hairbands and bows!

  21. Wow I would so love to have these beautiful threads. I have a new grandbaby (19 years between him and the last one.) So have to make him a very special quilt. And some surface stitching with sulkey thread is just what its going to need.

  22. I’ll be doing some research and planning a quilt for a friend whose fiance is in Afghanistan. They’ll be married when he comes back, and I promised her a year or so ago that I’d make her a quilt if she married ‘that nice young man.’ So I’m going to find a nice casual quilt design that I can use red, white and blue fabrics with. She said her favorite color is blue, so I decided to go with a patriotic palette to honor his service!

  23. I’m trying to piece a quilt top together, but 2 surgeries in a month’s time has kind of put me off schedule! I have always wanted to try the Blendables, I’ll have to check the colors to see what coordinates with my top once I’m done and ready to quilt 🙂

  24. I just got some Halloween fabric. I am a caregiver for a disabled person, and I make her table runners to fit the table she uses by her bed. I have made her ones for the seasons, and I haven’t gotten around to making her a Halloween one yet.

  25. Not working on any quilts right now; busy finishing the kitchen. However, once that’s done, I have 4 quilts I need to finish and this thread would certainly be a motivator (or 17 motivators…).

  26. I am working on a Car Seat Canopy for my new nephew due at Christmas. His name is going to be Jayce – my brother and his partner are duck dynasty fans, so I making his canopy in camoflauge colours with a matching quilt – in the anita arrowhead pattern

  27. I belong to a post card exchange and would like to “catch up” to where I should be…it is such fun and I love getting the “mini” post card quilts.

  32. Well, just checking Facebook before heading into my quilt room to work on…roman shades..nope, not a quilting project, but after that..homework for an October class I am taking that is quilting…the reward for making the roman shade for my daughters new kitchen..and hey, who knew I could make that..not me, for sure!

  33. Hi, I just finished cleaning out my sewing room,, and got to my threads,, all left in stock are my embroidery threads, so this would really help me to restock my quilting and sewing threads… Get set for fall and winter sewing time…. I love these threads and have used them for years… This is a very nice set too..

  34. I have 2 quilt tops that need to be tied and 2 more than just need a binding . I have cut out pieces for 2 more lap size quilts. I could use some new thread right about now , there are a lot of bright colours in my quilts, so it would be nice to use thread other than just white .

  35. I am making curtains for our “cabana house” (a glorified shed) with Fruit Ladies fabric and then a curtain for a changing area. I resemble these ladies! hehe. Then a jelly roll race quilt for newest granddaughter Princess, Leah, born 2 days ago.

  36. I’m going to be working on getting my granddaughter’s twin size batik quilt on the frame & the quilting started.

    It’s just the squaring I have blown.

    Or do the squaring block by clock?
    Just 48 I tell myself.
    Now, where’s that wine up on the shelf?

  45. My design wall is only big enough to hold half a quilt, so if I sew these rows together I have another half a quilt top to finish….design is called falling charms soooo hope two halves make a good whole…

  46. I am working on a “Little House on the Prairie Quilt” for my Granddaughters Christmas present. I just need to finish the border and will be sandwiching it and starting to hand quilt it this weekend.

    hugs,
    Cheri

  53. Now that my husband is three weeks post op on his total hip replacement and I have caught up on my sleep…. definitely going to start quilting two quilts that have been patiently waiting for my attention.

LOL… in the extreme heat we are going to have this week, I am working on christmas and thinking of snow.

  72. I’ll be taking a class to learn more about the new Janome sewing machine I recently purchased & plan to get closer to finishing a quilt-as-you-go blanket for my dad.

  74. I am busy working on Christmas wall hangings right now. I hope that this will be the year I am ahead in the gift-giving department. And wouldn’t I love to win the Sulky Slimline Storage Box!!!

  75. Blendable threads are my new passion. Began using them on quilts for contrast and it’s now made its way into my home dec projects. I am top-stitching with a Sulky blendable grey on a friend’s curtain & we are both amazed at how the blendable thread just disappears into the patterned fabric!

  85. I am not working on one Quilt project this weekend. I will be packing up my stash to move into an apartment. I am giving up my home and moving into a two bedroom apartment. One for my bed and the other for my sewing room. Living on a very fixed income wining a storage box and 17 spools of great thread would be awesome.

  86. I am hand quilting a top for a friend that has many colors. The blendables would be great. I have so many projects, actually, that any thread would be useful.

  87. I had two lap quilt tops made for the longest time and this morning I started making the backs for them. It’s my goal this year to get rid of some of these scraps so I am making all the backs out of scraps. I finished both backs and I hope to have them quilted this weekend.

  88. I am going to try and get more of my bow tie quilt for our 5th wheel done. Seems like something is always more important to work on so it’s taking me forever to get this quilt top together! Would love the thread and storage but that’s just wishful thinking on my part!

  92. I have two quilt projects going on for this weekend. One is a hand appliquéd fan quilt in 1930’s fabrics and the other is an art quilt of the Dust Bowl. I guess I’ve got the Great Depression on my mind these days, lol.

  99. I will be working on some self binding baby blankets, as I broke my ankle a week ago so I need to work on quick projects as I need to have my foot elevated most of the time. I could use a pick me up and win this!

  100. I am new to quilting. Been trying my hand at small projects, like coasters and ornaments and such before I move to bedding ….

Thanks for the contest and giveaway! Happy Quilting!

    1. I just wanted to say a huge thank you and send a warm hug for the beautiful gift of the Sulky threads and box.

This will be my first experience with Sulky threads and I am looking forward to using them! Thank you again! Blessings to all!

  108. I am working on a Quilt of Valor for my son who was in Pakistan in 2001 and Afghanistan in 2011. I would love the thread. I like to look at all the pretty colors of the thread when I go to the fabric or quilt store.

  110. I do have a quilt in progress that is dedicated to my daughter. It has blocks that are preprinted with tributes to daughters. Need to get it finished as I have 3 daughters and hope to have all of them done for Christmas presents.

  111. I’m going to be working on a purse/bag I started in a class last Saturday. It’s so complex, I only got the quilting done and one pocket. And then I had to take the pocket off because we didn’t check where the bottom meets to cover the bottom of the pocket. Anyway, I’m hoping that my Saturday dedicated to sewing will be enough time to complete this!

  112. Have to finish my soon-to-be granddaughter’s quilt before her arrival! She’ll be her any day now. 🙂

    I could so use the thread on the two baby (twins) quilts I need to finish by 9/7 baby shower. 🙂

  113. I am working on 2 machine embroidery projects this weekend. One is for a new quilt and then I am creating a hanging headboard from machine embroidered crazy quilt patches. The collection of thread would certainly add to the looks of mr projects.

  116. Working on 12 little backpacks made from 2 fat quarters to be included in 2013 Samaritan’s Purse mission projects at church. Sure could use that thread & love Sulky.

  117. I am working on kids quilts for my 4 little grandkids for Christmas. I did quilts for the kids and older grandkids last year so the little ones get treated to them this year.

  118. I have part of a baby quilt done and in a week our quilting class is starting again and we are learning how to appliqué . I have not been quilting for a year yet and need all the help I can get with thread and stash. My new love for quilting and sewing has given me a joy I never thought I would ever have again.

  119. Yesterday I put the final stitch into Beauty on Fire, a quilt I’ve been working on for nearly two years. This weekend, I get to add the label! That’s it. Just a label. The quilt utilizes a variety of NY Beauty blocks that I’ve collected over the years and it is striking in red and black.

  120. I am working on a scrappy quilt requested by my daughter. The main colors is burgundy, with greens, blues, golds and light neutrals for balance…only 19 more blocks to go…!

  121. Sewing down more applique snowflakes on my daughters Christmas table runner and creating a birch tree for a quilt I’m doing for my boss. So little time 😉

  122. I’m making a lace and blue jean lap quilt for a special young woman who has breast cancer. I haven’t yet decided on what color to do any satin stitching on the final product as I am making it up as I go! I put the crocheted “lace” over the top of the few Cathedral Window squares and then figuring out how to switch from the Cathedral Windows to brick style around. It is a project of love and caring.

  123. I am currently working on a Memory Quilt for my best friend who just lost her mother. Love Fons & Porters you have been such an inspiration!! Sulky thread is all I use…haven’t seen these yet in stores, can’t wait.

  124. Oh to be Blessed to win this.. I am always using my friend’s Sulky thread and it would be ever so nice to have my own..I’m hoping to do a Baby quilt for my grandaughter she has been patiently waiting for it.. and also using the Sulky for names on Christmas Stocking I’m giving as gifts to family this Christmas. 17 in all and it would take alot of Sulky thread to do their names.

  125. Thanks to sulky thread and of course Fons and Porter for giving us the opportunity to win THREAD!! I can always use more thread and I have never tried the variagated threads. I hope this gives me a chance to do that.

  126. I am going to finish the quilt I started for my oldest son. He will be home on 9/1 and I want him to be able to use it this winter. Sew Hi Ho, it’s off to quilt I go!!

  127. This week end, I’m working on a HUGE red, white and blue raggy quilt. I’d love to win the thread and case…….Many thanks for many hours of quilting enjoyment.
    April Hinton

  128. Love give-aways and the fact that this is a Sulky is the best. Thank you, Fons and Porter. Love you and love your quilting magazine and your TV show. Have saved several episodes to my DVR. Working on a Halloween table runner for my Daughter-in-law.

  129. I will be attending a pj party with the local quilt group. We are all working on a TEXAS panel quilt top, at the same time. There will be 9 or 10 of us attending…….Love the Show!! Plus all the helpful tips and how to’s in your magazines and beautiful quilts!

  130. Trying to finish up a row quilt for my daughters Christmas gift. Thanks for the opportunity to win the fab prize! Sure would make for a great weekend! 🙂

  131. Sulky threads are my favorite. They always have the right colors and blends. Now that we have retired and moved to Arizona, I expect to have lots more time for quilting and this prize would be appreciated!

  132. I am a long time subscriber to Love of Quilting magazine and always watch Fons & Porter on PBS (on two different channels). Also give a subscription to my sister-in-law every Christmas.
    I like all the Sulky threads – have used it for machine embroidery for a number of years and I prefer Sulky bobbin thread for embroidery and sewing/quilting. I haven’t used a lot of the blendables but like what I have used. Would love to have the box. I have never won any of the contests I’ve entered, so maybe this will be my lucky time.

  133. I have one side of binding to sew on my 91 yr old mother’s birthday quilt. She has seen it and loves it, thank goodness. Then I get to start a new project and finish 2 table runners that are also gifts. Yea!!!

  134. I’m working on a Minglewood Block of the Month quilt that I am enjoying very much.
    I have learned to do things I never expected. I can’t wait for the day I can put it on my bed. I am looking forward to making quilts for my family.

  135. Just finished a quilt for a lady Navy veteran and plan on a presentation soon. Will be putting another one together from nine patch blocks made by a little 94 year old lady who loves to make the blocks but does not like to put them together. She keeps me hopping. We keep the War and Peace Quilters in quilt tops to make quilts for Veterans. Love to use Sulky on my embroidery machine.

  136. I would love to be able to finish or even work on a project right now but I just fractured my wrist and have to be in a splint for the next 3-4 weeks for it to heal. But when I come out of this it would be wonderful to have this sitting here waiting on me to get to use on my projects or start a new one.

  137. I will finish a quilt for my friend birthday, and will finish another that is almost done for me. Hope the weekend is long enough . I propose to create 3 days weekend, we need more time to be creative.

  138. Being unemployed .. i have time to get back to my quilting .. but not privy to buying fabric so now i have to use my imagination..lol Uh oh we’re in trouble now!! lol

  139. Hello there from Nova Scotia, this next few months is a finish the projects time for me, presently trying to finish a one block wonder, star of Bethlehem, a stack and whack and a few others!!! This would be a great addition to my quilting supplies. Keeping my fingers etc. crossed and good luck to everyone!

  140. Just recovery from hip replacement surgery on 7/31, so I haven’t done any sewing, but I’m getting antsy to get in my sewing room and getting started. I have a Summer Challenge to do for my guild, so that’s first on my list. Hopefully another week or so and I’ll be back in full swing! Happy Quilting everyone!

  141. Oh the beauty of Sulky Threads! After losing my home in this messed up
    economy, I sew for charities, including a group we call Sewing for Babies.
    It started out sewing for Premies who never have enough quality design
    clothes; and has even expanded to sewing for disasters. I love using my
    Sulky threads to embellish those precious little items. I have no doubt
    that your fine product will get the required number of postings!
    Challenge to everyone to post 🙂

  142. I plant to finish quilting on a border of a quilt, finish a baby quilt and attempt to make a heritage challenge quilt for our quilt show in Hazen ND, Sept. 6-7. It isn’t started.. so have to work hard and fast the next two weeks.

  143. I am ready to skip fall and go right into my Christmas projects, I want to make a really cool stocking this year and finish the wall hanging I started last Christmas!!

  144. I am working on the PERIWINKLE QUILT, only I’m embroidering the middle in multi color threads…I will post pics when I get some of the embroidery done.

  145. I’ve begun working on Christmas gifts as well as several BOM’s and a sew-along. I also need to get binding put on a quilt and drop off more quilts to the long arm quilter. Oh wow what a wonderful giveaway this will be. Thanks for the chance to win!

  146. Oh My Gosh, I have so many things I can work on. But I’m going to get some fair type items that I can put in our booth next month. I’m wanting to finish up a little boys quilt. Looking forward to getting that in the mail. I love the thread box and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed, well not while I’m sewing. LOL

  147. So many projects, so little time… I’m hoping to finish marking the quilt top for my daughter’s quilt, in between last minute preparations for the first day of school on Monday.

  148. I finished quilting the bargello part of my quilt and now have to bravely tackle the 4 inch border. Will probably practice a LOT on a simple wave or oval loops. The point being; I sure could use some of those beautiful Blendables. Right now am building up my collection of regular threads. Fancies come at a later date!

  149. I’m going to finish a “jeans/flannel” rag quilt that I’m giving to a family whose house burned down and they were left with nothing. I took a class from Sulky on how to make leaves…loved it and plan to do similar on a challenge wall hanging for our guilds 2014 show. Ever since that class I use Sulky to embroidery on my quilts.

  150. working on a table runner for my daughter’s new kitchen. Unfortunately, it’s a complicated one, have it all cut out and lost the instructions. Back to the drawing board

  151. I just finished new valances for 2 of my rooms. I also just finished embroidering Halloween door hangers for the little ones in my life. Now I am embroidering on fabric to make a cool trick or treat bag for a little guy having a birthday in Sept. I want to start a quilt, as I just recently finished a rag quilt, but I haven’t decided yet what kind I want to make.

  152. Sulky thread is wonderful..I love it. Oh boy, could i use that storage container and the thread. I have about 12 tops to quilt. Spent 8 weeks in a cast and oh poor me, all I could do is saw quilt tops. One I started in 2000.. finished that top and a bunch others.. It feels good..except now i have to quilt them. No new quilt tops till some are quilted

  153. I am embroidering the border strips of my Go! Be Dazzled quilt. I have the 8 square blocks and the 8 diamond blocks done so far. I hope to finish all of the rest of the embroidery for this project this week end so that I can start putting the top together. It is machine embroidery that has gradually moved me into the world of quilting.

  154. Since I am off of work this weekend, I am going to start moving some things I don’t want any more out of my room. This will start the new beginnings of a sewing area in my room instead of a very old card table that I am using now to sew on. I have to take the sewing machine off to press or cut fabrics, and then put the machine back on to sew. The card table is a old wooden one and has seen better days. I love the colors of the thread and would love to win it so I can make some more quilts for babies.

  155. Want to plan a sampler layout for a group of patchwork blocks. Love the Sulky Blendables—-used them to machine quilt a quilt made from a large floral fabric. Worked great—BLENDED right in with the flowers!!! Could not have been more pleased!

  156. I have my first bargello quilt top almost ready to go. I just want to add side panels to make it wider and even more spectacular! Some more thread is always welcomed!!

  157. I would have only one problem winning this many Sulky Blendables…I would have to be careful not to drool on them…. I would love to use them for my quilt made from Summer by Malka Dubrawski.

  158. I hope to plan a lay-out for another Quilt this weekend. And I want to try out a pattern for pillowcases… I would love to try the Sulky Blendables..

  159. I have some flannel quilts that I need to quilt. The majority of the fabric was already cut into 5 inch and 9 inch blocks and was placed on our Project Linus chapter’s donation table. I made the tops and had an abundance of one animal print in the 9 inch blocks to figure out how to use those for the back side. One of the ladies suggested bear paws. I made the bear paw blocks and still could not figure out how to quilt it. Recently I thought about it again and decided that I would use the back side of the quilt as my quilting guide and stitch in the ditch around the bear paws. I’m hoping it will look really cool on the front side since the front sides are primarily the 5 inch blocks in animal prints and solids.

  160. Working on a Fall Lap Quilt cause I love changing out my couch each season with a new one and when I embellish it with Sulky Threads it just makes it that much more BETTER!!!! Love those Sulky Threads!

  161. I love to sew but I am fairly new at quilting. I am currently working on some placemats to refine my skills. I love placemats because they are small enough to work on in my cramped sewing room, but still so much fun to make 🙂 I have decided that everyone will get placemats for Christmas and some new thread would be awesome!

  162. Wow I really love variegated threads – they are my favorite to quilt with, especially for smaller projects. I would love to win this. I think I am becoming a “threadaholic” just like I am as a “fabricholic” and “batikaholic”! 🙂

  163. The colors are so beautiful. Would love to have had some when I did the Lovin’ Miss Ashley kit. The fabric was so beautiful. Now I am only working presently on the small 12″ x 14″ mini quilt for the Ackfeld wire stand. Thank you for accepting my comment.

  164. Hello,just want to say I love using those threads,try to save them for Best? Work that is.lol Just started to put pictures on some of my granddaughters clothing,and with your threads being so bright colored they seem to really stand out,which is what I want them to do.So I cantruly say that silky threads are the BEST!

  165. My daughter is expecting a new baby any time now and I am going to try to finish a baby quilt that I started a long time ago. I would love to win the thread. The variegated thread looks fantastic. Thank you for the chance to win.

  166. I love thread painting with sulky threads — sooooo many colors to choose from. Who knew you could create that many shades of green? Currently working on some small Christmas Wall Hangings as gifts… from the latest issue of Quilter’s Newletter christmas edition.

  167. Right now working on a Christmas wall hanging, trying to get it to the quilter asap so that it can be entered in our quilt guild’s QUILT SHOW. So exciting to see so many quilts displayed in one place. And I sure do enjoy working with Sulky threads. Just purchased some this week. Would be great to get some FREE!

  168. I’m hoping to get started on my new Christmas tree skirt. I’ve had the fabric and pattern for two years so I’d say it’s time to get started on this project.

  169. I’m going to be using up some fat quarters…make it a fat quarter friday if you will 🙂
    I have a market bag/tote in mind with some chili pepper fabric….SPICY!

  170. I am working on a baby quilt for my new nephew who is due Oct 4th. I am also working on a memory quilt for my beloved West Highland White terrier, MacKenzie. I am using the fabrics I cut out with her sitting at my feet just a few days before she unexpectedly passed away. She had pyometra, a disease of the uterus. Spay your dog, not just for birth control, but because it may just save her life.

  171. I have three choices; finish hand quilting a mystery quilt, machine quilt a bargello quilt or start putting together a Texas Lone Star quilt. Right now I need to check my garden which may lead to some canning first!

  172. I will be working on the Women of Influence quilt, making the applique blocks. I always work a little applique into my quilts, and some decorative stitching. The Sulky thread would be great for my projects!

  173. I won’t be working on any quilting projects this weekend because I am picking up my 2 grandsons Saturday morning so they can have some quality time with Grandma. If we have rain may start teaching the oldest to sew, never to young to start (he is almost 4). I am starting to run low on quilting thread, just finished 5 quilted receiving blankets for newborn babies. Used up a lot of thread, plus just made 24 quilted potholders for gifts. I feel I would be an excellent choice to win the thread, I really need it. Thanks, love your tips and quilting magazine and your programs. You guys rock!!

  174. I love variegated thread and have just finished using it for a baby quilt. I would love to win this prize. I am also working on a log cabin wall hanging using a hand stitch called the Promise Stitch. It originated with the Appalachian Mountain people. It is a double stitch…a running stitch to attach the pieces together and then a top stitch (running stitch) to finish it off. I am really enjoying working on this project.

  175. ALWAYS working on a quilt project – every weekend – yet still have so many more to do! Weekdays will become an option once retirement gets here!

  176. Starting a wedding batik quilt in purples & teals for my daughter. Hope to sew binding on a charity baby blanket on car ride to old roommate’s wedding on the beach. She & her partner of 20 years are becoming legal in WA state.

  177. Life is so stressful and hectic. We are moving to a different city and one thing after another has happened to delay us. The last crisis was that my husband had a minor heart attack which led to a triple bipass and two weeks in the hospital. Now he’s recovering nicely and I’m planning on cutting out the pieces for two baby quilts. There is nothing more peaceful (pieceful?) than sitting and hand piecing flannel fabric. I don’t know the gender of the baby . . . that’s why I’m starting two quilts at the same time! But, I’m planning on taking several deep breaths while I concentrate on one stitch at a time.

  178. I am working at sorting my scraps. I have some pillows and runners that I want desperately to make, but have to SORT colors first. I’ve just started to like scrappy quilts after 20 years of quilting, Imagine that!!!! I would love to win some thread. Thank you for offering this prize.

  179. I will finally be quilting a quilt top of my Mom’s. I have had it since May with no idea of what design I was going to put on it. It is a Stack-N-Whack block but the blocks do not look like flowers. Worked on the design the other night, went to bed not satisfied with it, but just before I went to sleep the design popped into my head. I just love it when that happens. Does anyone else have this happen?

  180. I love Sulky thread, I am finishing a wall quilt with numerous embroidery designs “In Full Bloom” from Lynette Anderson and I used this wonderful thread, it looks so beautiful, I love it and I would be really happy if I win!!!

  181. Up to camp this weekend with family so it will be a “plan” time….I organized my stash this summer – now to come up with some ideas for quilts. Also to think about a quilt for a wedding…..

  182. I could use all these beautiful colors for the christmas gifts I am working on and for my Bargello Heart I need to finish. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great and useful gift.

  183. I love the Sulky Blendables so much that I will often buy it in 30wt. AND 12wt.! They are so beautiful that I want to be able to use them in whatever I’m doing, by hand or by machine.

  184. I am so thrilled! Just finished my “quilt in 4 1/2 years” project! It’s quilted…now on to the binding. So much fun to be in the running for the lucsious looking threads! Drooling…

  185. Planning a log cabin round table cover for Christmas/Holidays.
    Need more threads, esp. this brand. Love it how it blends.
    Also finishing a little wall quilt and a twin coverlet for my 5-yo granddaughter.

  186. I want to make quilts for my six/6 Grandroyals out of clothing, and ‘stashes’ of those who’ve gone on…as well as for my two/2 young cousins who lost their Mom a few years ago, and their Grandmom more recently. I’m just trying the navigate the wide range of fabric types to make it work…eeeee?!* Maybe quilted pillows might make it a little less daunting?…

  187. My mom is teaching me the art of sewing, which she is so passionate about. I only hope to one day master half as much as she has. Wonderful memories in the making!

  188. I am a thread addict so this box will go well in my sewing room. This weekend I will work on grandkids quilts….my first attempt at foundation paper piecing,,,,wish me luck and some thread wouldn’t hurt either….:)

  189. I have two projects to work on this weekend. The first is a paper pieced block to use as my center for a round robin. The next is to do a practice star square to check my construction before starting on 12 blocks for an online swap!

  190. I’m planning every weekend to work on projects. it’s just that life keeps getting in the way. going with one granddaughter Sat night for senior pictures and our oldest granddaughter and her daughter on Sun to do some school shopping. But tomorrow morning I have to get new tires on my car and there’s a quilt shop about eight blocks away where I plan to spend some time, so I guess drooling on fabric could kind of be considered quilting…..

  191. I have a fall wall hanging on my longarm, just need to finish the background fill, then off and bound. I have a Christmas wall quilt that’s been embroidered by hand I’ve been working on for 3 yrs in the fall/winter months. Hopefully, it will be done stitching by sunday!

  192. I’ll be working on a Chips and Whetstones block for the mid-to-late 1800s, adding pieced and appliqued late-1800s fabric. I love the old blocks, tops and quilts.

  193. Wanting to finish a quilt-as-you-go quilt. I need to put on a border, do a little quilting to anchor the back to the top & then bind it. Probably won’t finish it this weekend because I have to work both days, but will hopefully get it finished on Monday. I would totally love to win this luscious thread.

  194. I have been working on an elongated hexagon cross block hand pieced quilt in batiks. I think most of the blocks are done–now to decide on a background and get it stitched into a top. Great relaxing fun.

  195. My current project is a a baby quilt for a new grandson expected in early Nov. I’m having a hard time deciding what color thread to use for the quilting – this prize would surely help – thanks for the chance to win!

  196. My current project is a quilt for my 23 year old grandson who is getting married next year. Love Fons and Porter shows and always learn so much from them and from Love of Quilting Magazine. Keep up the good work. Of course I would LOVE to win this thread — it’s beautiful!!!!!!

  197. Topstitching, with monofiliament, at least 50 very small feathers on my beautiful black swan by Grace Errea. Then I am going to have a glass of beautiful Merlot.

  198. My seam ripper and I will become very good friends this evening. I have 30 blocks that I am not satisfied with and they need to be “fixed”. Then I can start sewing rows together for my 9 yr old granddaughter’s bright lime green and purple quilt.

  199. For a year I have been wanting to do the tumbling block quilt, so I finally got the nerve to start cutting it out. It would be so nice to have Sulky thread to sew with.

  200. I am making siggy blocks to send to people on the Dear Jane International list. They in turn send me a block and when I have enough I’ll make them into a quilt.

  201. Just finished a baby quilt for the newest “granddaughter”. Now am going to make some pillowcases for her big sister, then it’s on to a quilt for a great niece. My thread collection is growing and I would love to have more storage (not to mention more thread!)

  202. I’m working on my second ever bed size quilt! The first I made for my cousin’s 20th birthday next month – but this one will be mine. 🙂 I usually stick to smaller projects, because I have more use for placemats, wallhangings, etc than big quilts.

  203. Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting and the PBS programs were where I started to learn how to quilt. Just this week I watched the episode about binding. And I have been procrastinating putting on the binding. So, the binding will be done this coming week. Thank you for the knowledge that you share.

  204. It’s my 48 th Anniversary today and I would love to win that beautiful box of thread. I am a lucky winner, anyway, with a wonderful husband who encourages me in my quilting no matter how many bags of fabric I bring home. So, congratulations to whoever wins the prize.

  205. Just picked up a replacement walking foot (fell apart in the middle of a class), so can finish a couple of projects: a table runner & a lap quilt. Need thread!

  206. Do I have A quilting project I would like to work on this week-end??? I, like a lot of others I know, have many quilting projects I would like to work on. One of them is a flannel Fossel Fern jelly roll quilt. I need to border it to make it a little larger, and then I would like to machine embroider a flight of hummingbirds across it. Then, quilt it. On top of that I have a batik quilted purse that needs finished, a cathedral window quilt that has been an ongoing project for 20 plus years and, do I need to go on? I really need to finish many things so I have room for more!

  207. I’m working on a quilt for my niece who’s having a baby in a couple of months! I’m also going to work on my BoM sashing. My hubby is going to the deer lease for a coulple of days – lots of time to sew!

  208. I’ll start Saturday as I start all my Saturdays, watching Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting of course! Then I’m off to a wedding. Thank goodness there’s a four hour gap between ceremony and reception because I’ve got two quilts to finish for my nieces that will be born early October. Then I’ll spend Sunday resting with my quilting on my lap. =)

  209. I am working on a UFO that I started when my third grandchild was born and now I am waiting for the seventh one. I really need to finish and could use Sulky’s beautiful thread to help me.

  210. Taught a class today and will spend the night working on an “autograph” quilt for a friends surprise 50th birthday. Many other projects on my mind–hope I can get to them.

  211. I am working on a quilted throw for my daughter and her husband who just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. She said when will it be done, when I am married 50 years????? I said this fall, so guess I better get busy, huh?

  212. I will be working on a table runner called “Square in a Square” or Storm at Sea. I just finished a workshop with my quilt guild and it was so confusing! If I don’t finish it this weekend, I will forget how to do it!!! I hope I win the thread to quilt it with!

  213. I have been promising my 10 year old grandson a quilt and just haven’t found the right fabric for it until I was at a quilting exhibit and had a chance to buy some Solar System fabric which isn’t even on the shelves yet. My grandson is into this big time and I could only find print that was more for younger and so when I saw this print I knew it was the one. So this is the beginning of my weekend adventure which will carry into September I am sure….have to stop and watch Fon’s and Porter shows.

  214. I have just found out that my niece is expecting a little girl in January and I have spent the day gathering fabric from my stash to start sewing a baby quilt that she wants to hang on the nursery wall above the crib. Could sure use some thread and would love to win this great giveaway.

  215. I’ve not been sewing, but cutting out quilt after quilt using my new GO! Accuquilt. Getting ready for the winter with already prepared projects. Right now I’m into a Rainbow Batik obsession, and enjoying every minute of it. Unfortunately I Cut so much one of my Accuquilt mats has to be replaced and there’s not one to be had in the town I live in. Going out of town tomorrow!

  216. Going to begin a baby quilt and hope to get it done soon for my great nephew, and try
    too finish another one that I have been working on, sigh…but I love it, those threads would be so awesome for all my baby quilts I have too make, get one done, 3 more to go.

  217. I’m going to work on a “little purse project” for Jennifer’s Quilt Shop in Pinckney, MI. AND also getting the binding on a baby quilt…. AND then if I still have any time left, I have a Christmas project that I would love to get started….

    1. I just looked at the time on my entry and it says August 24, 2013 at 1:56 am…. I can’t quite figure that out, as I’m in Michigan and my computer says it’s 9:58 pm on August 23, 2013…

  218. I have a couple of quilts that need finishing. I know I’m late with this and not able to win since it’s way past 5:00pm. This thread would be sensational to have. But I really hope that I can get some stitching done this weekend. It has been awhile since I’ve done some quilting.

  219. Have 5 more blocks on my stack and whack to finish then I can start assembling them
    into my quilt top, hope to have finished by Tuesday 9/3 to take to my guild meeting for show and tell.

  220. Well I should be finishing up 2 baby quilts that I have made but need the quilting done. But I just purchased fabric for a chevron quilt that I am going to be making for a gift for a dear friend. And the fabric keeps calling me to go work on it.

  221. Carol Thompson says:

  222. OOOOOOOHHHHHHH!!!!!! Love the thread…they ususally have all the colors I need when sewing quilts…I have been storing all my threads in tubs…fun to try to find the right color when it is in the bottom of the tub. Can’t find the right color of thread…back to the quilt store for more and maybe a little bit more fabric…

  223. I will be quilting a wall hanging for my sister’s birthday, it’s Bill and Floyd, two cats, peaking out of a pumpkin. Would love to win the Sulky storage box and thread!

  224. I just finished a baby quilt, piecing, quilting binding and got it mailed yesterday. I am going to Chill-out until Monday and then jump onto a new project. I have too many UFO’s at the moment to decide which one is next, but something is coming off that list pronto!

  225. I have just finished two quilt tops and now need to make may sandwiches. Would love to win the Sulky storage box and thread. Love Sulky thread. Thank you.

  226. I would love to win this box of thread. I think it would round out the many colors I already have. I have several tops ready for quilting, plus a few more tops to complete. One of which is my very first one, Wave Fever. I suddenly feel the push to complete this quilt.

  227. I’ll be working hard on a wall hanging for Ronald McDonalds Wine Taste and Auction on Sept 20. It is my own design encorporating redwork (9 blocks with a wine theme),cork fabric all worked in a large star. Last small wall hanging I did for RMD House bought in $350. I am hoping this one does better.

  228. I’m always sewing and have heard how good Sulky threads are, however I have not had the opportunity to try them out. Would love to win such a wonderful prize as I’ve got a quilt to start quilting. Julie Beard.

  229. It’s been on the frame for 2 months, waiting, waiting and waiting some more for me to finally come up with an idea for the quilting of my Trongan Raphsody BOM quilt, so tomorrow I switch on the my machine and start quilting… yippeeeee ‘I can’t wait’.

  230. I am working on several WIPs this weekend as I go back to work on the 3rd of September. I want to baste and quilt my houndstooth quilt. I have a wall hanging to baste and quilt and I am working on the pattern juice boxes by Cluck Cluck Sew. I am halfway with cutting the blocks out. I know as I type this, I will not complete any of them and start on a new project. I just got Simply Retro from Camille Roskelley.

  231. Many moons ago I started a disappearing nine-patch quilt. I had to stop while sewing the rows. I had it lying on the extra bed in the guest room. I bundled it up, pinning pieces together, and sure that I would get back to it as soon as company left. I tell myself every day I “need” to get back to sewing the rows so I can get the top done.

  232. I plan to prep the background block for my next monthly quilt class at Village Sewing in Santa Rosa, with Patricia Hani. Then maybe quilt my horse wall hanging…..

  233. as much as I would love to quilt I have a new grandson that has come to live with us, so getting him a room put together and him ready for school. then I back sewing/quilting
