Quilt 1, the one drawn and colored with Seta color and Ink intense pencils has not been touched. I am having trouble deciding on what color to use as an outline.
I had been thinking dark brown and then someone suggested purple. I also was thinking about matching the thread to the colors on the quilt. This sure would involve a lot thread changes. Any ideas?
Quilt 2 - The batik quilt has all been outline in white. The words need to be finished and all the thread ends need to be buried. Will do this while watching Downton Abby tonight.
Not too bad for a first try.
I realized that my words should have been quilted the other direction to flow more with the quilt. a lesson learned for the other two quilts. I am not about to try to unpick this.
Tips for the week : two important tips I used this week that helped me with the problems of trying to use my Pfaff for freemotion quilting. First: I used a separate thread stand. This kept the thread from getting caught and ended my needle breaking spree. Second: I used an embroidery needle instead of a microtex sharp. This stopped the shredding of the thread. Yeah!
