    WHY WHY WHY!!!! You can have every color of the rainbow in thread but start to quilt something and I'll be darn if I have something close to use. And the nearest place is JoAnns and that is 40 minutes away. AAAHHHHH!!!!!!

    Poor thing. I hate when that happens.
    I'm also about 30 minutes away from the nearest LQS.
    That's why I just ordered 30+ spools of different color threads from Connecting Threads.
    Surely I'll be able to match close enough to what I'll be sewing. :roll:

    I hate when that happens! When there is a quilt show I am planning on going I TRY to see what I might be getting ready to quilt and try to add to my thread collection. I take my color charts with me and I have checked all that I have already. You know there is ALWAYS something that comes up and we don't have the color we would like, or not enough to finish. :)

    Can't go wrong with that strategy. They have good prices and excellent thread.

    Yea I just saw the sale at JoAnns. Hmmmm. I am headed to Tampa for the weekend and have already scoped out the quilt shops there. But I may also check out Connecting Threads as I have heard so much about it and try it out. The funny thing is what I need is either black or a medium blue which are colors I should have but don't.

    I have almost every color Connecting Threads has and even then I have had a hard time matching up an exact color!

    I just use white most of the time. You're talking about the hand quilting, right?
