I was so excited to start the actual quilting yesterday until I saw how horrible the thread looked on the backing of my quilt!
The top is mostly white with cool blues, lavenders and greys (churn dash blocks) and the backing is a dark blue. I thought (since I was determined to quilt it on my machine) that I would make it simple and just do simple cross lines to match the lines on each of the blocks. I picked this wonderful baby blue and it went so well with the colors on the top. But the back!! I don't think I am ready for such a contrast and don't know what to do other than use the clear filament thread that I always seem to fall back on.
So is the moral of the story to pick my fabric better? Do I just get used to the contrasting thread on the back and hope it never flips?
How do you all wonderful talented quilters do it? I pour over all the pictures and everone of them are absolutely gorgeous! Maybe some day I will have the nerve to post one too!
