Loving the blueprint fabric. This cedar sunprint is sad because it was made shortly before I cut the tree down to make way for the new house...

    Can't wait to see the finished project, Sara. It's going to be a thing of beauty.

    Hi Dorothy,I have used a lot of Superior thread but not their 12wt vaaiegrted so I can't give you a direct comparison but their thread is not hand-dyed which, in my opinion, gives a more natural gradient of color. For instance, their yellow gradually turns into orange and gradually into red rather than having one inch of yellow, followed by an inch of orange, and then a inch of red. I also like the luster of the hand-dyed thread as well as the fact that it is colorfast.
