I’ve been a bit busy for the past couple of weeks so I didn’t get a lot of sewing done. However, I have now managed to finish this quilt top which has been in progress for a couple of years 🙂
The white fabric is a very pretty white on white Makower Ivy Leaf design. The others are all Makower Spraytime. They are all lovely quality and really nice to work with. I didn’t set out to make a sampler style quilt. It just happened! I made a few practice blocks and quite liked the colours together. I picked it up and put it away again several times. The sashes were also a bit of an after thought but I wanted to make the blocks stand out and it seems to work.
Now I need some help from my blogging friends! I plan to back this one with white cotton fabric but I’m struggling to decide on the colour of the thread for quilting. Should I play safe and go with white or choose one of the other colours in the quilt top? I think I should probably go with white because of the crispness of the design and the colour contrasts but I’m happy to consider all of your thoughts if you would be kind enough to share them. I can easily be persuaded to do something different 🙂 Any ideas?
