That’s the color I picked to quilt this together. It was my first instinct back when the idea of quilting it with meandering stitches occurred to me. But over time I really started doubting myself and considered about every other color I could think of. Black like the roads? White like clouds? The same fall colors I was already using? Maybe just one of the colors I used? Nothing seemed quite right. I was really overthinking it and at an impasse. Again.
Then I remembered my secret weapon: I have the most awesome and imaginative friends in the world and I was planning to spend the weekend with them. So I asked them over the weekend and blue was the second idea I heard.
(The first being to sort of frame each square with stitches which is a really good idea but I had recently done that.)
Oh yeah, that was that first idea…I’m going for it.
I didn’t start it until last night so I only got across the quilt two times but it’s a start.
|I got enough done to abuse my macro setting privileges. It’s my favorite way to take pictures stuff I make.|
The blue thread really seems to blend in with the blue denim but pop out on the fall colored corduroy and that it was I was hoping for.
I’m really excited to get further along now.
Thank you to my friends!!!!!
