What a silly question! :)
So, as you may have seen on Monday's post, we now have a whole new background to work with that needs to be quilted.
Issue: it needs to be done quite subtly, but it still needs to cover up some of the "bleed through" of the background fabric.
I auditioned threads for the sky, and decided that all three of these would do the trick.
I used the darker teal blue as the bobbin thread and used the glossy teal and blue-green as top threads. I put them both through a single needle, put the walking foot on my machine, set the stitch to 4 ('cuz I wanted a nice big stitch) and then did I quilt? No!
I first marked off some guides with painter's tape.
And THEN I quilted.
Next, I auditioned threads for the cobblestones. As you can see, there's a lot of bleed through from the foliage part of the fabric, so I was learning more towards the grey/beige side of the threads, and using a heavier weight to calm it down - my reasoning being that if your eye is drawn to the thick grey thread, it's not going to notice mustard yellow leaf shapes!
I switched feet and got to quilting.
Yup, that's gonna work.
And I painted in a moon and added some stars using some of the beads you might remember from this post.
On Friday, we'll start putting those buildings back in. But I'm not painting them directly on the fabric this time...
And it's Wednesday, so that means that it's WIP Wednesday at The Needle and Thread Network! Check it out. :)
