At last, something quilty! But YIKES - how should I quilt this bright string quilt??? OK, Elaine, just get started and DO something! My thread is a near black/purple/gray King Tut. It's difficult to choose the 'right' thread on this one.
These strings were pieced on fabric foundation, and left in. The seams were pressed open, but I was worried about bulky seams possibly breaking my needle, but so far, it's going along OK. This will be a donated quilt. It's 48" x 60". I finally decided on large loopy-loos, and heart leaves, and I'm using a size 14 needle. The thread spool even says to use a 14.
