I think you guys know that I love Aurifil thread, so when Melissa from Ms Midge asked if I wanted to pick colours for her Aussie Aurifil Club earlier this year, I was totally into it.
My bundle is called Cloudy Day, because all the colours are slightly greyed out.
I started with my absolute favourite grey - 2605. It's the perfect medium - not too light and not too dark. I love it for both piecing and quilting. Then I added brass, 2975, because I just cannot get enough of that delicious mustardy yellow. Smokey blue (4644) and mulberry round out the bundle, providing depth and a nice foil to the brass.
I'm so delighted by how this bundle looks all together, and I can't wait to stitch with it. As you can see, I've chosen to receive this bundle from Melissa in the 28 weight thread, because these are colours I want to SEE when I use them for quilting. And, let's be honest, I'm more likely to actually use this thread if I can run it through the sewing machine than if I need to use it for hand quilting!
