The problem: what thread do I use on the back? I'm so new to sewing I don't have many different thread colors. And I live in a place where my options to buy thread are limited. With this particular backing, which is pink with strawberries, there is no way I can find a match to the pink without ordering online. And I'm just not willing to spend a bunch of money ordering different shades of pink hoping I'll find a match and never using the rest
I did find a red that matches the strawberries on the backing. I'm a little nervous about using it because let's be honest it will show all of my mistakes. And there will be many, because I'm still a total newbie and I think this quilt may be too much for my modest machine to handle.
So last night I used some scraps left over from the top of the quilt and backing to make a mini. I thought this would be a great way to test the red thread on the back. Here is the front with a nice neutral thread that matches the linen:
Thanks so much for stopping by, can't wait to hear your input. Even if you think the red is an awful idea tell me, I can handle it!!!
