I have been quilting for awhile now, and while I really love it, there is one step that I wish I could skip-the actual quilting. I do my own on a frame and mid-arm and that is all great, but how in the world do you decide what pattern to use on the quilt once it makes it to the frame?
I have read books, asked other quilters and no one seems to know if there is a formula or something to tell you which pattern to use, and yet when you look at a quilt, the quilted pattern seems to suit it.
Another question- what about thread color? I now use varigated and that seems to look ok and blend well.
Soooo, does anyone have any ideas on how to choose a pattern? I would really appreciate your thoughts, otherwise I will be quilting squiggles all over my quilts for the rest of my life!
