I Just Can’t Decide!
I think I am happy with my fabric choices for my version of the Go! Bedazzled quilt, but I am struggling with my thread choices.
I love the thread colors used in the inspiration quilt, especially the punch of turquoise throughout.
I want to use this in my bedroom, in which I tend to use burgundy/cranberry and earth tone colors and feel that the turquoise would not “go” in the bedroom .
I think I just need to get over it and go for the bright punches of color, that is part of what drew me to this quilt in the first place.
I embroidered a sample stitch out of one of the blocks with several different thread options.
I am getting closer to making some choices, but am starting to think that maybe my light colored appliqué fabric may just be too light.
There are only 3 different fabrics in the entire quilt, a dark, a medium and a light. I did buy another fabric for the light option that isn’t quite as light and will try that tonight.
I am also reporting in for the 3rd week of the March-A-Long that Darla is hosting. My report is very brief (non-detailed) this week. I have definitely spent more than my 15 minutes each day doing or focusing on quilty/stitch things. I am mainly focused on getting Go! Be Dazzled prepared to take on retreat in 2 weeks. I also try to squeeze in a few minutes here and there throughout the week practicing free motion quilting. As usual, I manage to spend more than my fair share of time looking at photos and reading blogs.
