Star Wars Quilt And King Tut Thread

King Tut meets Star Wars!
Quilting thread and quilt, I mean.

I love the huge glass canning jar my sister gave me and Superior Threads gorgeous 
variegated King Tut thread colors look amazing showing through the glass.

None of the threads in the jar were "perfect" so the three-year-old Monkey Boy and
I headed off to Superior Threads to look around. I love that store and of course, found what I needed!
I think the guy with the tape gun closing up boxes for shipping got Monkey Boy's attention more 
than all those humongous rows of threads. Wowzers! There is so much thread in that store!

The Star Wars quilt is sandwiched and ready to quilt thanks to Monkey Boy #2.
He's such a big help with my projects...I don't want him to go home tomorrow!
I'm sure his mom and dad want him back, so I guess he'll have to go. Darn!


  1. Every time we drive through Utah I want to stop at Superior Threads. Unfortunately, it is usually after hours. One of these days I will get there.

  2. Sounds like you've had a very special week with your monkey boy! I also store my threads in see-through containers like that and love the way they look!

  3. I love King Tut thread for quilting. Awe Star Wars a quilt most any boys would love, and lots of girls too.

  4. This will be exciting. Go GO Carol. I am really looking forward to your creation :-D

  5. Quilting and shopping are far more fun with little helpers, that I am sure of. Can't wait to see your magic.

  6. Looking good!! I'll bet your boys are studying that blueprint!!

  7. I love your glass jar filled with gorgeous threads. I have never sewn with Superior Threads but I have a visit to them on my wish list! I told Mr. C that I could go to Thread College right there at their facility. Embracing Creative Bliss...

  8. There's just something about seeing thread, or buttons, in a jar. Makes my heart smile. blessings, marlene

  9. You are so lucky to have such a good helper! I've read a lot about Superior thread and am anxious to try some. Not many shopping opportunities up here, but I'll find some!

  10. I put my thread in glass jars too.
