It's late. I want to be done this job. I have a long way to go and many threads to pluck. Who knew I could do so much damage in less than 15 minutes of free motion quilting?
I had grand plans of using cream coloured thread on the sashing, and then swapping it out for a coloured thread for the blocks, while keeping cream thread on the bobbin as the back is mostly creamy fabric. I picked out a juicy orange thread, but with a two and a half year old who has access to my sewing area, it went missing. I grabbed a colour that I thought would work (turquoise) and it DID.NOT.
Ah well, starting on the outside working in when it's your first quilt (even a tiny doll one) is not a good idea, I don't think. I got it all quilted, all around the edges, and then realized I should have done a much better job pinning the darn thing. Plus, I can't seem to get my tension set quite right, so two colours is not a good idea since the bobbin thread peeks through ever so slightly on the top. Not pretty. Using one colour will mask this a bit, although it would be best if I could get the tension set perfectly.
So it' s back downstairs to the seam ripper I go. *grumble, grumble* The amount of time ripping versus sewing is madness. Madness I tells ya.
