How shall I quilt this??
I sewed them together by machine this time and it worked a charm. Refer back to last week's post for the tute link.
Now the quilting.
I used this pretty fabric my friend Mary gave me thinking I could flip the table topper and get a really different look.
I CAN, but it complicates the quilting.
If I machine quilt it from this side and accent the flowers, it won't define the hexies on top. I think it will look odd on the flower side to accent the hexie shape on top.
Complicating the whole thing is I kind of want to hand quilt it since I haven't done that in a long time.
What color thread will work on both sides, maybe lime green.
Yep, something neutral like lime.
This is where the runner will live, replacing the winter one... until I get the dining room table cleared off.
Until then I thought you might like to see some gratuitous yellow studio shots. I love yellow and it brightens up a space.
