RaNae Merrill is talented concert pianist turned quilting professional! We’re excited to brag about her Beyond Horizons – Wonky Dots quilt. The quilting on this design has lines less than 1/8” apart. To mimic the fabrics on the quilt, RaNae chose MasterPiece.
RaNae says, “When I want a cotton thread for quilting, I love MasterPiece. It's just the right weight to show on the surface of the quilt without being bulky. The smoothness of it keeps my machine clean and lint-free. And the colors are just wonderful!
I adore Kimono Silk for quilting. I love the fine line of the 100-weight silk for intricate patterns. I love the way the colors shimmer on the surface of the quilt. And though I don't do a lot of appliqué, when I do, I love the way the Kimono Silk thread disappears into the fabric -- both because of the fineness of the thread and because of the way light reflects through the silk fibers to pick up the color of the fabric and blends into it.”
