I almost didn't do my quilty hour today. I just wasn't feeling a "kick" to do it. But after reading several blogs with new postings, I felt myself getting interested and figured might as well! :)
So the quilt is all pinned and ready for free-motioning. I've already figured out what design I'm gonna use - small meandering, wiggles and hearts. It should look pretty cute. :) You can read a little bit more about making the quilt here.
My husband wanted to get his ice cream while I was pinning and he treats quilts like if they're a map, and the pins are landmines! He walks very carefully around them. I just smile and tell him it's ok to step on it, I don't leave the pins open. He politely declines. :)
Now my problem is that I can't decide what color thread to use! I will be using only one color, all over the quilt. And it'll be the same thread in the bobbin too. So I took two photos and would appreciate your input.
I'm already pretty sure that I'm not going to use the pink thread on the right, it doesn't match correctly.
The plan is small meandering in the blue/green fabric, outlining the geese' "foots" with wiggles and a heart in the square. My mind just keeps thinking "blue would be pretty nice... no wait, green might be better. But isn't the pink perfect? Wait.........!" So you tell me. ;)
Today we were gonna BBQ some steak, but it kept raining. :P Back up plan was homemade pizza. I'm still fooling around with crusts, just can't seem to find one that we both love. But it was still perfectly edible and the leftovers always get eaten. :)
