Sorry for the silence lately but I have been sewing, sewing, sewing, in preparation for Market – mostly on the machine, but a little by hand. I love the look of hand-quilting and should do it more often.
Last night I hand-quilted around this Desden block with 12 wt. thread. I used a slightly darker green in the center and a vivid pink around the block itself. I love how the pink contrasts with the green striped background. I love it and wish I had used heavier thread, but time is of th essence and 12 wt. is what I had.
Next I need to quilt this…
I am thinking purple or green in the center circle and maybe a light aqua around the Dresden. Or maybe pale green. Your thoughts?
