It has been quiet on the quilting front on this blog for a while, but that's not to say I have been otherwise engaged.

There have been snippets and today I will tease you with another: Precensia Finca Perle Thread. No8 is a medium weight and is perfect for hand-quilting.

I have just finished a special quilt and have used these divine threads to do some of the hand-quilting.  I have used them before for some tiny, tiny crochet but never for actually sewing with.

As ever, choosing the colours was the best bit for me.  I bought some online from here and selected the last couple of colours needed when I snuck in to Tikki Patchwork when I went to Kew.

If I can find a still moment in the day tomorrow, I will try and get some decent photographs of the finished quilt before it goes on its journey.  And it is quite a journey.


  1. That looks so fine. I think my hands would be scared to work with it. I can't wait to see the photos of the quilt.

  2. Oh the colors are gorgeous! And looking forward to the pictures of the finished quilt. Is this the quilt I think it is? K x

  3. Or is it the quilt I think it is???

  4. The colours are great! I am sure you had a lot of fun choosing them... it is the favourite part of my job :)

  5. Don't those threads all look beautiful!?! Can't wait to see the quilt. Lucy x

  6. what beautiful colours - I love the way you've used them on the finished quilt.
