I finally (!!) got around to starting on my much talked about table runner. I have assembled the blocks and now need to put it all together. A kind lady at my local quilting shop advised me to 'stitch in the the ditch' as it was my first project. However, when I got home I realised I had not thought about quilting thread. I have posted a pic below of the unfinished runner and am unsure about a colour for the quilting thread - do I assume that using this method means the stitching won't be seen so a neutral colour is best? Or I was wondering about a silver thread so it sparkles a bit. Would really appreciate some advice.
I have made a few errors in my assembly and cutting - a severe trimming job was needed yesterday to make sure all the blocks were even! That's why some of the points of the triangles seem to vanish.... :oops: Was so keen to get the picture - I have not even ironed it yet! :lol:
I have had a look around at some of the pictures on this site and the quilts are so beautiful!
