Any weeds in your garden (yet)?
Last week we worked on The Dandelion Free Motion Quilt tutorial and I made the little quilt below.
We discussed if the quilt below had enough quilting.-Read more HERE (see comments, too!).
This adds a subtle, but interesting texture. (Compare to The Scissors quilt--all the thread is the same.)
- More quilting is ALWAYS better?
- Use a heavy weight thread (40 or heavier) with a sheen (like Rayon) in a contrasting color when you want to pop the quilting.
- Use a low sheen thread of finer weight that matches the fabric when your goal is to add texture.
I think there’s a Thistle Quilt in our future!
