Applique Threads...

I received a lovely email today from Linda and her friend Robyn. They are "about to endeavour and begin the Vignette mystery quilt". Keen to use the same applique threads as me they were chasing some details. I thought that I should share this with all of you because it was such a good question:

I have used the Matilda's Own range of silk thread. There are many colours that you can select from and you can even purchase the entire range in a lovely box (this was my 40th present to myself!). For the Vignette In Stitches Mystery Quilt I used the following:

15 red, 129 bright pink,101 pale pink, 62 red/pink, 9 soft green, 122 lime green, white, 140 orange (and 27 orange when I lost 140!).

I hope this helps those of you wishing to invest in some lovely quality silk threads. They really are fantastic to applique with and a roll of each lasts a LONG time:

And before you ask the next question, the needles I love to use for applique and stitchery and just about everything are the Jeana Kimball's Foxglove Cottage Embroidery/Redwork size 9:

Enjoy every minute of your stitching!

Hi girls! Answers: I use a single strand of applique thread and two strands in the above stitchery. Also in the last photo you can see Back stitch, tiny chain stitch as well as French Knots and satin stitch.


The threads look lovely, do you use a single strand of it? Thanks

Meg Howie

Thanks Leanne, I use the same threads and they do last forever. I think I may have purchased some with you when we were in Loxton. I was lucky to be given the collection for Christmas and just love looking at all the colours. My quilt is coming along, I do love it so much, love to run my fingers over my work and say "I really did it myself". Thank you so much again for keeping me busy. Hugs xxx


I also love to use silk thread for applique and am using it to hand-piece my GFG as well. Lovely colors there!

Bobbie Lynn Duran

Thank you for sharing that with us. I am starting to get back into hand embroidery and I am loving it. Those are beautiful spools of thread there. Again, your stitch is amazing. In the last photo, you are using two different outline stitches? They are perfect looking.
