|Aurofil thread samples|
|Quilt Sandwiches and thread ready for play|
In addition to this bundle of thread, I picked up another little gem at the meeting: an older issue of Quilting Arts magazine. I was reading through it before bedtime when I came across an interesting article about thread play which provided inspiration my challenge project. I was giddy with excitement and woke up early the next morning and got to work making sandwiches using scraps of white, charcoal and black solid fabric. Pulling out a few groups of thread colors, I got to work creating my own colorful tartans.
Starting with red, yellow and blue, I stitched lines going vertically and horizontally.

|Pastel Plaid: yellow, pink, teal, and then lighter colors to create highlights.|
