Although it’s not quite visible there is a lot of quilting on the quilt. I’d originally been thinking that a lot of quilting, in black, would be best for this quilt. Not so, it wasn’t quite right and a friend pointed out that I’m hiding my quilting. There’s a lot of quilting design as well. I thought about what she said and decided to rip out most of the black on black quilting and use some color.
I visited the Superior Threads website and chose 3 colors.
Obsidian (top color) turns out to blend in too much with the background, so I’ve wound a few bobbins with it and it looks good on the batik backing that I have. Cinnaberry and Lobelia are working out well. As I started quilting my friend Neen gave me a spool of copper. that works so well with the quilt it just tickles me!
The copper can just be seen on the left side of this photo. I’m going all out with the quilting. On being asked why I keep changing the quilting design…short attention span quilting is what I call it however, it keeps my mind active as I quilt and offers a visual break with the different colors and designs.
I’m off to finish writing the article.
