No green thread means no quilting


I started and finished making this month's Schnibble this past Wednesday (my day off). When I went to quilt it on Thursday I ran out of matching green thread. It looked like the spool was half full but I only had enough to quilt a 1/4 of the quilt.


It's hard to get a good pic of the true colors in this quilt.



I think the colors are fun for a baby. I found some thread that seems to be close enough to the same shade that looks like it will work. I'll probably finish up quilting it sometime this week. I want to have it finished before the surgery date (March 24th) since I won't be able to do any quilting for a few weeks.

It looks great! Fun for a baby quilt and perfect for St. Patrick's day too. I am sure you will be able to complete it before the 24th!
