Hi, all. Just an update on the green quilt that I posted about the other day. When I start a quilt, I don't always have a very clear view of how I want it to end up, just some vague ideas. When I started this quilt, my idea was to create texture on the surface of the quilt to try to break up some of the green-ness of it and give it another level of interest.
So, how's that for some texture?
That section went pretty fast. Now, I move out into the borders...there are 7 of them. I haven't decided what to do in all of them, but I have decided this. Because there are only four fabrics in the quilt, I'm going to quilt each fabric in its own way. The darkest color in the photo above is only getting outline quilting, wherever it shows up in the quilt. And, the lightest color is going to get denser filler quilting and feathers. The apple green with the dots on it is going to get straight line outlining. There's a stripe fabric too and I haven't decided what to do with it yet. I'm planning to let that decision be made based on how the rest of the quilting looks. I could do anything there. Or nothing at all.
