AND… now there are a total of 126 magnificent Blendables in both 12 wt. and 30 wt.!
Here are some of the amazing projects in this new book which are virtually all done with Blendables and Solid Color Cottons, along with a few other Sulky Threads for accents:

Team Quilt by Bev Morris of Abigayles Quiltery in Olmsted Falls, OH.
This is her favorite fund-raising quilt which is perfect for all those "teams" and charity events in everyone's life! You will love her personalizing techniques and beautiful quilting with Sulky 30 wt. Cotton Blendables.
The Perfect Cover Up by Eric Drexler, National Sulky Educator - an easy and fun vase cover that stretches and fits over a bud vase. Another wonderful, fearless way to teach free-motion. Eric always makes it "sew easy".
And then, to really knock your socks off, Sulky Designer, Evelyn Byler has made the most magnificent shawl on her long-arm machine. Evelyn has done some amazing thread work over the years, but this is by far the most beautiful. It can be done on a home sewing machine too (just not as quickly), but oh my… it is luscious! You will fall in love with Blendables all over again!
And wait! Still another incredible project from Evelyn! A wonderful variety of 3-D leaves totally made with Blendables and other Sulky Threads in an array of colors and sizes, mounted on a cabinet door (really!), with cup hooks added underneath to make the most beautiful key holder you will ever see.
Nancy Sapin, National Educator for Sulky, and famous for her corded projects, has designed a really durable and beautiful Shoulder Bag that uses her special corded technique and gorgeous batik fabrics. Featuring the Blendables and Sulky Fuse 'n Stitch, this is the next step in corded projects.
