How in the world did it get to be February 23rd? I had hoped to finish the quilting on Rattlesnake by the end of the month, but at the rate it’s going, it looks to be an impossibility!
I’ve finished the decorative stitching on my outer border, and spent time contemplating next steps. Here’s where I am:
To finish off the outer border I am considering either
- Leave it as it is;
- Use black or grey thread to give the spaces texture;
- Add some color with some light quilting.
What’s your vote?
I’m currently inclined toward #3. I feel the outer border as it stands does not quite stand up to the inner border and the main blocks. I have some relatively dull red thread and a blue/green variegated thread that might give just a bit of extra color…
For the blocks, I’ll use some simple quilting in the outer portion at least. That alone is going to take a few days of quilting! Sadly they have not decided to give me quilting days at work…
