Threads and sketchbook

I treated myself to some new threads from Jennifer Gail Threads. They're really nice and i think a great price.
Do have a look at her site - she has the colour variations in different thread types and fabrics too.
Here's my sketchbook plan of how I'm going to quilt the Market Bosworth Water Tower piece I'm making.
And below is the sample in my sketchbook.


It's gping to have both hand and machine quilting. I even did a little thread card - an idea I saw in one of the girl's City & Guild books she made. I'm rather pleased wit the sample. I need to make sure I take my time. I've a fair way to go still and still to be done are the screen printing, dyeing the backing fabric and screen printing that, plus all the quilting and then binding and the sleeve. And the little jobs you have to do on every project (like the binding) always seem to take much longer than you expect.
