Some of you were wondering how I was going to quilt my Wee Basket quilt…well I wasn’t sure.. at first…BUT here’s what I eventually went with…
Plain old hand quilting…using plain old Gutermann’s Hand Quilting Thread. I am stitching a ghost of a wee basket in the beige blocks and also stitching around each coloured baskets to make them pop.
These blocks are just too small (3”) to handle BIG stitching …and in a darker colour and in perle cotton they were too busy and the effect took away from the quilt as a whole.
The subtle wee basket quilting adds another dimension to this Wee Basket Quilt…
It’s been about three years since I small stitched quilted so it will take some practice before I get into the swing of things…and it’s going to take time….but I have all the time in the world…RIGHT?!
I like that I have the quilting frame set up in the Family Room so that I can plunk myself down in front of it whenever I have a few spare minutes…It’s all GOOD!
Have a SUNNY Sunday and Happy Quilting!~P
