|Morning After the Storm, 53.5" by 46.5" ... almost done!|
Now, a bigger question: Should I even bother quilting them at all?
Reasons against quilting them:
1.) I have stitched in the ditch both horizontally and vertically on this quilt, so the yellow patches are stiched on their outer boundaries.
2.) They're pretty small, as you can see by the sewing machine bobbin sitting next to the purple diamond, bottom center.
3.) I still don't know what design I'd use.
4.) This quilt's getting a bit "busy."
5.) It would mean dragging the entire quilt through my sewing machine again; lots more work.
Reasons for quilting them:
1.) I'd get to use the beautiful variegated King Tut thread, by Superior Threads, shown center right.
2.) I'm having fun quilting this again, finally!
Please weigh in with your ideas on whether I should quilt the yellow-y/pinkish areas. Leave a comment here (preferred, so all readers can enjoy your comment) ... or simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm also going to post my question on Leah Day's "Question Thursday" page, part of her Free Motion Quilt Along Project. And, if you should find yourself stuck with a question or problem on free-motion quilting, do leave Leah a question. She's quite experienced, and very generous in helping us "mere mortals" get a handle on this process!
Have a great day!
