Lots of quilting here! The outside border is quilted with blue thread, the center area is quilted with yellow thread. In most cases, I match the needle and bobbin thread.Lois used a solid light backing, therefore, the back of the quilt is blue and yellow, too! What do you think about using contrasting thread against a light backing fabric? When planning your fabric for the backing, consider the thread!Here’s a detail of the quilting designs. I love how the yellow and blue areas are defined and the 4-patches pop!
The middle is stitched with my Cockscomb meander and the border is a floral meander with Terry Twist in the four patches. By using freehand designs, I can shrink or enlarge the stitching to fit the space. I just have to remember which one I’m stitching!
Thanks! Linda 🙂
