Made a start on the Love Quilt

No picture - will post one tomorrow. Have made a start - used invisible thread to 'anchor' the blocks - and am presently stitching around the appliqués using this thread.

Have tried numerous threads with which to FMQ the quilt - and have finally decided to use Glide threads usually obtained from FIL-TEC bobbincentral in the USA.

However I have discovered a UK source:
Unit 3
The Fattinetts
Hadleigh Road
East Bergholt
Colchester CO7 6QT

Four 1000 yd spools from J-QUILTS cost me £18 including postage.
Downside when ordering from the States is the high shipping costs - plus import duty/VAT if you are unlucky.
