Well, today is "Support Your Local Quilt Store Day". I hadn't intended on making a run out there cuz Lord knows I have enough fabric stockpiled and I'm back to working on my List of 17 Unquilted tops.
Which brings me to why I patronized my local quilt store: thread. I just don't have a whole LOT of quilting thread in various weights.
here. I've been studying this wall-hanging and .. oh hooray! ... have come up with a quilting plan! I'm glad this time it was fairly easy to decide what to do.
The thread I picked up is Superior's "Bottom Line" in light green (#614) and deep purple (#631). They are going to be used for the stitch in the ditch around the appliques and for stitching the background designs.
For this wall-hanging, I don't want the quilting per se to stand out. Since Bottom Line is so fine, it will work out wonderfully. I didn't buy Superior's "So Fine" line because it doesn't have the shades that I need.
I'm working on my local quilt stores to start carrying it. :-)
So, that was my stimulation of the economy today. Next up: marking the wall-hanging so that I have some quilting guidelines. I can see, in my mind, so clearly how I want this wall-hanging to look like. I have every hope and anticipation that my vision will become a reality.
I also have my fingers crossed. :-)
