For the love of Miss Edie Grey

Meet Miss. Edie Grey, an adorable 1-1/2-year-old cream french bull-dog from Oklahoma. Christopher (The Tattooed Quilter) and Jack acquired her from a breeder and at 8 weeks old, she made her journey from the mid-west to the big apple. She may just be one of the most delightfully adorable pups we’ve ever seen. Edie spends her days lounging on perfect pink chairs, basking in the sunlight, reading the NYTimes style section, brunching with her dads, and talking strolls around her NYC neighborhood.

Fun Facts About Miss. Edie Grey:

  • She’s named her after “Little” Edith Beale from Grey Gardens fame.
  • Like most french bull dogs, she’s stubborn, loveable, and an all-around clown.
  • She loves to snuggle with her humans, especially under a vintage quilt.
  • She prefers beef over chicken.
  • Apples and the occasional popcorn are her go-to snacks.
  • She loves the pool and would take a bath every day if she could.
  • She prefers Fall over Summer.
  • She has two besties in her human’s apartment building: Eggs and Rosie.
  • She’s an Instagram pup-ebrity (pup celebrity) and won’t pose without snacks. (Follow her HERE)
  • She’s quite the shopper and anyone who walks her down the block will quickly learn that she knows exactly where the two dog shops are in the neighborhood.

It was only fitting that Christopher include a fabric print honoring Miss. Edie Grey. The print comes in three color ways, white, blue, and navy — via Riley Blake Designs.

We jumped at the chance to collaborate with Christopher and Edie on her debut collection, a swift follow-up to Blue Carolina (learn more about Christopher’s debut Aurifil collection by clicking here.) Miss Edie Grey released in September and features 10 small spools — 5 in 50wt and 5 in 12wt.

We, like Christopher and so many of you, are dog lovers… pet lovers really. We love helping where we can and were absolutely thrilled to align this collection with the French Bulldog Rescue Network.

“FBRN’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home French Bulldogs in need from commercial breeding kennels, import brokers, public shelters, private rescue groups, owners or Good Samaritans. Our organization is comprised solely of volunteers who nurture and foster these dogs as well as provide education and training. Our goal is to place healthy and happy French Bulldogs into forever homes.”

A percentage of sales from this thread collection will be donated to the French Bulldog Rescue Network.

We always love seeing the gorgeous creations that are made with our threads and the coordinating fabric collections. Feast your eyes on these!

  1. these muted shade will work well with a “modern hexi” pillow I’d like to try – with blues on grey Essex linen

  2. I am a quilter so I would use them in some kind of quilt. Love the dog and those blues are to die for.

  3. I’ll use the 50wt for FMQ and probably the 12 wt for fancy FMQ embroidery; have had my own dog’s head, Zentangle-style FMQ-embroidered quilt in my head for some time and these would be perfect.

  4. I would love to try the 12 wt for embroidery- haven’t had the opportunity to try it. It would also be great to bigstitch a small quilt that needs stitching!

  5. i would use these threads to make kennel quilts, pillow cases for the million pillow case challenge, and large fleece doggy blankets for wrapped in love.

  6. I’m making a series of orange peel mini quilts, and I’d love to use the Miss Edie Grey threads with these.

  7. I am getting ready to make cute throw pillows with some adorable designs for a bedroom I just did a makeover for so I would use them for thst for sure. Perfect!

  8. Oh such a cutie! Thanks for sharing the pictures and information on her.

    I would use the thread set for a quilt, probably for one of my nieces.

  9. Those great colors would be great for quilting a friendship quilt I am making out of 30’s fabrics.

  10. The 50 wt thread would be used for quilting. I have been dying to try the 12 wt for applique and big stitch quilting. Love Aurifil. Thanks for another great giveaway.

  11. So cute. I would use the 12wt for embroidery, and the others for quilts, especially a pastel baby quilt I’ll be making. Thanks.

  12. I would use the 50 wt with my piecing and quilting; I need the 12wt for my embroidery!! Thank you.

  13. I think Miss Edie
    is spoiled! Looks
    adorable. I’d like
    to sew up some
    Carla from Utah

  14. These colors are so soft they will blend with anything I make. I think coin and larger zipper bags are in order.

  15. Miss Edie is adorable. My Sami the Wonder Dog is an award winning (She won the Lily Pad’s annual Pets on Quilts contest for 2017) Boston Terrier…or Boston Terror according to what mood she is in at the moment. How we love our fur babies.

  16. You can see who rules the roost at your house! She commands attention (by sweetness). Love those blues and the thread. Would love to try some.

  17. Miss Edie Grey is adorable! I’d use some of the threads to do some free-motion quilting on a lap quilt I’ve just finished.

  18. I would definitely make a quilt with the Miss Edie thread collection. Thanks for the chance to win.

  19. What a little cutie Miss Edie is! The 50 wt thread will be perfect quilting. I’d love to try 12 wt for embroidery and big stitch quilting. Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. Love Miss Edie. I’d use the 50 Wt for quilting and the 12 wt for top stitching and hand quilting. Thanks for thinking of all of us pet lovers. grinnie1961 at gmail dot com

  21. I do think Miss Edie would have a girl crush going with my Miss Sophie! They’d get along fabulously! I would use these threads to sew a new dress for Miss Sophie so she can continue to be in style!

  22. Wow , you are one very lucky pooch Miss Edie 🐾 getting your own collection 🐾 I love it all and can’t wait for it to hit Australia ☺️ I am new to paper piercing and have just bought the new pug pattern so I can make my pugalier a collection as good as yours! Well I am going to try 😉

  23. What perfect neutrals! I would use them for hand applique (50 wt) and big stitch quilting (12 wt).

  24. I would make a quilt for the princess in my house too we call her babydog! Ha. Basic colors for basic quilting…love.

  25. Miss. Edie Grey is adorable! I could use these threads in so many projects. It’s hard to pick just one. They would be great for a soft colored baby quilt.

  26. Now I see why my granddaughter talks so much about a French Bulldog. What a wonderful thread collection-usefulfor so many things.

  27. Great collection! And we are dog lovers also. We have had several rescued pups. Our Mr Bilbo Baggins is now 12-14 years old. Got him when he was 2-4. Vet couldn’t tell exactly. He’s a basset/Scottie mix. We call him our Bascotti! 😂Lovable old man now.

  28. My parents used to have an English Bulldog! Love a good selection of neutral threads! Can’t wait to get the Blue Carolina fabrics! Great gorgeousness!

  29. This doggie has the best personality!! Too stinkin’ cute 🙂
    Love the thread colors – perfect for anything!

  30. I would use them to fancy stitch lap quilts. I love Aurifil threads, Beautiful colors and greatly reduced lint in my machine. Here’s another hint. Cut your sewing trimmings into small pieces (no long strings) and toss them into a shopping bag. Take larger scraps and make puppy and kitten beds and use the cut up scraps to stuff the beds. I take them to the local No Kill Shelter.

  31. I have a friend with a french bull dog named Grover. It would be fun to make a lap quilt for them out of Ms. Edie Grey’s thread.

  32. Blue is my favorite colors anyone can see from my stash piles. The 12wt thread would be used for my embroidery, and the other for piecing a blue quilt/off-white quilt with embroidery. Thanks for sharing this story. All of our animals have been rescues including pure bred cats and dog.
