Here's another Little Quilt I was working on over ten years ago. It got to where it was ready to quilt ( in those days I hand quilted everything), and then ended up in the UFO pile. Then some years later I bought a walking foot to go with my old Bernina and decided to try it there and then. So with no practice I grabbed the first thing I had ready and started quilting in the ditch. It was a dreadful job and even worse... I didn't change my bobbin! The backing is black and the bobbin thread was light blue/grey. What was I thinking?
What a shocking job.... I only can talk about it because it seems like a lifetime away and done by another person. So when I was looking for something to sit with the other day I started to unpick all the stitching. I suppose the good thing about using the wrong colour bobbin thread is that I can see it. I am thinking that I might try quilting it with black perle cotton but I am not sure if that will look too much with the black button hole thread. I suppose the only way to find out is to try it. Otherwise it will be just a black quilting thread in the ditch.
I don't even know what I will do with this when it is finished - but I know that I do want it finished. Maybe I could hang it somewhere like I see here ( Libby) .Or maybe someone will see it and love it. I have to finish it first. There is value in everything and I have learnt some important lessons here, especially about planning ahead.
