I started quilting on my entry for AQuA's exhibit at PIQF this morning, after piecing the back. So far, so good. I'll be using lots of thread colors- I'll need to figure out tomorrow if I have all I need so I can hit Dave's Bernina before they close. No chance of finding quilting thread on Sunday!
This is what I have so far--
I'm trying to make smooth transitions between thread colors, and imply a sense of movement and the mountains behind the turbines.
I don't think I've ever done a quilt with this many thread colors. I'm trying to pay attention to how the choice of thread color impacts the color of the fabric. I don't know if the trapunto I did with the wind turbines will be that obvious- the quilting around them may not be dense enough.
There's also a lesson in this for me. I do my best work in the morning, so housework just has to wait until later in the day!
