The Collector Series



I've been quilting the Collector Series by hand with the big stitch using a DMC crochet cotton in black.  I have most of the blocks outlined and now I can go back and outline the applique.  I love using the black thread for quilting in a prim quilt.

  4. That is the perfect quilt for big stitch. I like using the spool floss for large stitches, easier to use and cheaper since I can use a coupon for one spool.

  5. Debbie, DMC crochet cotton comes on a roll and in different sizes and goes further than spool floss since the rolls are larger and is less expensive than floss.
