Wow I know I haven't been around these parts a lot recently. I apologize if you have missed me. And I will apologize again because for the next few months I cannot promise any consistency. It has something to do with being about to have baby #4....
Anyways with baby #4 being my first boy I wanted to make him something special. I didn't think a dress would cut it this time:) So I have taken on my first ever quilt. (Okay I take that back I tried one once, right after I graduated high school, but that thing is to never ever see the light of day...)
So here is how it has been going: It terrifies me, which means I procrastinate it. I am not a perfectionist or by any means a precise person so when I do work on it the work is slow and often has to be re-done. At this moment I don't believe I will ever quilt again.
Timeline: I bought material in Oct. I washed material in November. I started cutting out material 4 weeks ago. 3 weeks ago I was at this point. Figuring out the layout.
So I do have a question for you. What color of thread would you use to do the actual quilting? I am going to trace some dinosaurs and then make them bigger on my copier, trace those onto freezer paper, cut them out and use those as my quilting shapes. Should I switch the colors I use? Should I just use black, or blue? What would you do? Thanks for the help.
ps. I am using this pattern from Moda Bake Shop.
