I had a Moda Botany charm pack that's been sitting in my drawer since December when I bought it at Burgundy Buttons on super sale. After much debate, I decided to use it in a stacked coin-type quilt and chose the Moda Bake Shop version.
Problem - it needed 2 charm packs and I only had 1. What's a girl to do? I'd been hearing a lot about Connecting Threads from the ladies in my quilt group and decided to give them a try. I bought some basic white Essential Thread (boring I know) and a couple of their solids charm packs to mix in with the Botany. The colors are very nice and I was happy to find enough matching to make it work. The fabric itself is a little more stiff and less soft than Moda (but honestly what isn't?). Everything sewed up very well and I'm pleased with how it's turning out. The thread works really well in my machine too.
I'm piecing the backing with some of the Connecting Threads yardage too, so we'll see how it all comes together and is quilted, washed, and crinkly!
