Pfew! The quilting is finally finished! It took a while, but it was fun to do!!! 🙂
(If you want to read more on this quilt , please just go back through my previous posts.)
I have used the better part of a 1000m spool of Amann white thread, Saba 120. I have discovered that this thread is thinner than the regular Gütermann thread and it therefore quilts up nicer.
I am glad that I used a thread colour that would disappear a bit into the fabrics. I am still getting used to the supreme slider that I use for the FMQ. Sometimes I move a bit too fast…
I decided not to quilt both the blue fabrics in the quilt top. I think that quilting those too would make the quilt a bit too stiff.
The binding will be put on later this week. I am planning to use the lighter orange fabric as a binding. The others are nice too, but some blend too much (like the blue and maybe also the yellow) or others contrast too much (bright orange).
I think that both the oranges would work, but the brighter orange fabric is a bit coarse. I would like to use a better quality fabric on this quilt.
Here are the “audition photo’s”.
So which one of the “audition fabrics” do you think I should use?
Thank you for filling in the poll underneath!
Better Off Thread has featured my Cloud Nine quilt top today for Sew Cute Tuesday! I am stoked! 🙂 Of course I linked up again with the current pictures (with the FMQ).
