What’s On My Frame This Friday?

Well…it’s another charity quilt made by Heritage Betty!  And it’s a beauty for sure!  It reminds me of the Ocean Waves quilt which is on my Bucket List…


Loops and Stars are what I decided to quilt thanks to a couple of celestial blocks…and loops and stars are perfect for a baby quilt..besides they are fun to do!


A couple of weeks ago, Jane, another quilter at Heritage, was telling me about a thread that she used with great success on her mid-arm…SEW this week she brought me a cone of Glide Thread to try out on my mid arm…it’s is a third the cost of So Fine Thread by Superior.  Well it performed beautifully…not one breakage…and not one ‘issue’ with the machine!  Quilting is so much fun when everything goes smoothly!


I will DEFINITELY be ordering some Glide Thread…  At $6.20 for a 5,000m cone it is a real deal! 


Thanks sew much Jane for sharing all your quilting knowledge…and your thread!!  If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times…


…Quilters are the BEST!


Betty, another beauty bites the dust!!  You did an awesome job!!

And thank YOU for stopping by!  I hope you too get FRAMED this Friday…happy stitching!~P:o)


  1. I dearly love your quilting! You are so good! I'd love to have a machine and the time to use it! Are you quilting for hire yet?

    Thanks for sharing! Love reading your blog!

  2. Looks great! Off to Snip & Stitch this morning with Vickie, having another lesson on my machine. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Beautiful quilt and your loops and stars are great! Way to go! Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Did I not tell you about Glide thread??? From Fil-Tec?? That's a crime on my part--it's become my favorite thread and as you said, it is less expensive than Superior. They also make matching pre-wound bobbins for the Glide thread but they are magnetized, not sure how well that would work in a mid-arm but they work so well in my longarm, I never have to tweak the tension.

  5. Love the vintage look to this quilt! Beautiful!

  6. That is a beautiful quilt to work on.


  7. Wowee! Gorgeous quilt and gorgeous quilting. Is there anything that you can't do with fabric and a sewing machine?Great job!

  8. Yay for you. Such a pretty quilt, I bet you had fun with this one.

  9. Thanks for sharing your work and your experience.

  10. I LOVE Glide thread! I am completely converted to this thread now :-D Your quilting looks great!

  11. Adorable quilt and I love the loops and stars! You both did a great job!
