What a CRAZY week!!
I finished the top to my "Stars in Stripes" quilt last weekend and boy am I glad I did. I have been thinking about it all week trying to identify the best way to quilt it. And I think one of the ladies at the CMQG meeting Thursday evening came up with the best idea...
I am going to quilt it using small meandering pattern, but I am going to contain my meandering. The back of the quilt is a solid cream, so the quilting will be pretty obvious on the back of the quilt. So I am going to quilt inside the blue lines and blue stars with blue thread, inside the red stripes with red thread, and I may or may not quilt the cream colored areas. I'm thinking that I won't so those prints on the cream can easily be seen, but once I get the red and blue into the first row when I have quilt on the frame, I may change my mind.
This will render the design on the front "etched" onto the back in a meandering pattern, yet it won't detract from the front of the quilt.
Tell me what you think, I'd love to hear your opinions... As a reminder, this is the quilt...

Ready to be Quilted
I also finished the top for my Robert Kaufman Kona Solid Challenge top... It too needs to be quilted... But I will apparently have to show a few photos of that another time, as the "Saving" function and the photo loading function seem to be having issues...
Thanks for Stopping by,
Until Next Time,
