I drew out a partial quilting design today for my patchwork piece (thanks Susan for the large tracing paper!). I didn't have any with me in Florida so Susan gave me some pieces...I didn't think to leave the paper in Florida so I brought it home with me...but I digress....here is the design I traced out.
Here it's overlaid on top of my patchwork piece. I'm liking it well enough so I used some Transdoddle tracing paper to transfer the circles and lines to the patchwork.
Beth (from Quilter Beth's Blog) suggested I might use light blue or even yellow thread for my hand stitching!! Who knew!!! I did try the light blue but didn't like it...here I just laid the yellow along with the dark blue...but I'm thinking the yellow might be a perfect accent for using in some hand stitching!! Thanks, Beth!!!
When I did the hand stitching on my Hex Horse #1, I used orange thread in just a few of the stitching lines (red and blue were my primary threads). You can see just two of the orange threads in this picture, in one of the corners. So who knows...the yellow might be a perfect accent or addition to stitching with just blue thread!!
