Since I have a lovely selection of variegated thread, my first thought was to go to that way, but as I quilted a small section, the doubts started creeping in. As much as I love this beautiful Valdani thread, I'm afraid it will compete with the simplicity of the overall design. I do like the calmer version on the right.
Of course this meant an expensive trip to the store.....aren't they lovely.
My first inclination was to buy some Aurifil thread, as it is really nice to work with, but alas not all the colours I needed were in stock (I tried two separate locations). So I decided to give the Mettler poly sheen a try...gasp...I know, I know it's not cotton, but but but they had a huge selection of glorious colors and it really has a lovely sheen.
So there you have it....I will be using both threads in the same quilt! I'm really living on the edge, aren't I!!!!
And would you look at that lovely fabric on the back.....It was on the sale table, how could I resist?
While on my outing, I ran into fellow Quilter/Blogger Nicole...at the car wash, of all places and she shared some wonderful news. VICTORIA....is starting a Modern Quilt Guild and if it could get any better, they will be meeting within walking distance of my place!!!
One more thing....just how do I manage to create such a mess in such a short time, I've only been here a few days???? Some things never change.
