I think I really love the results, I am just needing to decide if I want to do the whole quilt like this or just part of it. Maybe the green half to be quilted in squares/rectangles in green thread? Yet to be determined, as I only got through 1/4 of the quilt before naptime was over.
In related news, I checked out a quilting reference book from the library last night and learned a few things I should be doing but was not. See, I never took a class or really read a book, I have just been kinda winging it as I go along. Turns out my machine has this thing called a walking foot that makes it easier to quilt accurately. Hmmm. I tried it, and it worked well. Plus, it looks hilariously weird, and that helps to ease the pain of not figuring this out before.
My other WIP, the Tula Pink Parisville-utilizing one, has a backing fabric cut up (a Serena and Lily salvage again, from a sheet) and is all basted up like a turkey. It is awaiting my trip to buy quilting thread that matches and machine time stolen from the above quilt.
