Sneak Peek - The Subtle Tree and Where's the Winner?

Greetings fellow quilters and thanks so much for stopping by.   

Since the official Aurifil announcement of my debut thread collection,
The Subtle Sampler,
I've been busy creating new ways for YOU to use this marvelous sampling of threads.    

Here's a sneak peek at my current project, The Subtle Tree: Winter...
 I'm having so much fun coloring & quilting with The Subtle Sampler!
An upcoming *free* project,
The Subtle Tree: Winter,
will help you feel more comfortable with Free Motion Quilting.
We'll do some simple, yet effective thread painting, add in a little swirly free motion background AND hand stitch a few french knots while using nearly every thread in The Subtle Sampler collection.

Isn't that FUN?

Stay tuned... in short order I'll be sharing the details so YOU TOO can make 
The Subtle Tree: Winter....    

And as we make our way into 2018 it might make sense to create a Subtle Tree: Spring or Summer or Fall too... ??  Yes ?

While we're here -- let me mention that The Subtle Sampler is or will soon be available at your local or online quilt shops -- maybe one of your favorites?  
These are a few that I'm aware of:

Lebanon, OR  ** On Sale Now **

Ithaca, NY

Endicott, NY

Naples, FL

Be sure to visit one of these shops locally (or online) and pickup The Subtle Sampler so you can stitch The Subtle Tree with me!

If YOU know of other shops that are carrying The Subtle Sampler -- please do let me know -- I'll be happy to add them to the list.   


Before we go..,
Jill Spencer -- where are you ?  
I've been attempting to reach the winner of the original
Subtle Sampler Giveaway
for more than a month now. 
Jill  -- if you see this message in the next week please comment on this post with your email address.  You've won your own Subtle Sampler thread collection!

Happy Stitching !!
