I'm hand-quilting my first quilt, and the end is in sight. Yay! I'm thinking about what I've learned and what I want to do differently. The backing on my current quilt is dark purple. The quilting thread is white in most parts, with red hearts scattered throughout. I'm not unhappy with it, but I'm a little disappointed that the quilting isn't more visible on the back.
If I want my quilting to be seen on the back, should I stick with lighter fabrics in the future? Or is the color secondary? Are the stitches invisible because the fabric is patterned, meaning that I should stick with solid fabric for the next one?
