    Unhappy Back in my 8th MUF...

    Hello! How are you? I hope that very well!
    I... not so much! Lol! : (
    Do not always leave us things as we imagine them!
    Yesterday I did the quilting on the edge of "My hearts"... but now... nothing I didn't like!
    Again I did not choose correctly the color of the thread!
    And the design is very nice: are facing double hearts. It is a pity that the quilting is not appreciated because of the color of the thread!
    But this time... no I will leave it as well, only to terminate the quilt! He could not see him every day and repent!
    So esto will do throughout the weekend: dance with my seam Ripper! It is a hard decision, but I think that successful!
    And it is not what this girl was waiting as a birthday gift! Hahaha! : P
    To blow the candles this year, I will ask a fairy to help me with the choise of threads of my quilting! : Rolleyes:
    If someone has a tip for the choice of thread... grateful it heart!
    I leave a photo of the edge with the quilting, a close-up view of the quilting design and another picture from what I already began to unpick!
    Wish you all a happy and lovely weekend!
    A big hug to everyone!

    A gold instead of the white for the quilting. BTW it's a pretty quilt.

    I think maybe a nice shade of gold would look good also!

    Unpicking is the pits! Your top is beautiful and I agree with the others using a gold thread would look very nice.

    I agree with the gold - however I am also wondering if this quilt will be washed and if so will the shrinkage actually camaflouge the thread color? I don't have a lot of experience in that part since I don't think I have ever kept a quilt and washed it.

    Are you saying you are having a birthday this weekend? If so, have a very happy one! I don't think the white looks so bad, but I'm sure a bit darker color (such as gold) would be better. It's a very pretty quilt!

    nYou always do such wonderful work Gladys. I'm sorry you're having to rip out-no fun but I do the same thing. I do agree that a gold to match the leaves in the fabric would be great. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    My personal preference would be a burgundy but a gold would be pretty too. I love your design!

    I think your quilt is very pretty, and call me strange, but if you were making it for me, I would be happy with the color white thread as it is. But whatever color you use is ok, because you are making it with love, and your vision.
