Okay, that was a bit of a lie...it's me that needs you.
This morning I basted my long forgotten Cameo Giant Star. Don't even ask me when I made this quilt top but it's been languishing in a cupboard and today its number was called.
I pin basted it and then quickly decided that perhaps I should hand quilt it. I make no bones of how I don't enjoy machine quilting and so I plan to hand quilt it using perle. I love seeing those colourful chunky stitches and I love hand quilting.
I'm not looking for help on technique but rather what colours you would suggest. In the patterned sections, would you use a contrast thread or a similar tone? Would you quilt in straight lines across the quilt or in sections?
Whether you hand quilt or not, I would love to hear from you!
