I made a very modern looking quilt for my son and completed the top, basted it and got it ready for quilting. This was probably two years ago. I have been agonizing about the quilting. What to do?
I was really stumped as to how to quilt it. I had tried hand quilting with embroidery floss - no! I thought about using a stencil - no! All that marking did not seem appealing to me.
A few days ago I had an epiphany! Why not quilt it sampler style! Be creative and quilt different designs in each colored block. So I bit the bullet and started yesterday. It all went swimmingly! I got two rows completed as well as three rows of the sashing. I started in the middle of the quilt, so the hard parts are done now. Not so much fabric to stuff into the throat of my machine. I am also having so much fun trying out shapes which I have not done before. The quilt is predominantly blue and grey. So I picked a beautiful blue thread called "French Blue" from Connecting Threads. It is a perfect thread for the job. The colors don't show well on the pictures and I apologize for that as I took them last night.
On a different note, look what came in the mail yesterday. My FAVORITE magazine next to QUILTMANIA! Have a great day everybody!
