I'm looking for suggestions/insight into how to quilt this, ie thread color, design, etc? I keep defaulting to blue thread that matches the border and backing fabric, yet it doesn't seem quite right in the yellow and orange fabrics. Would you use a different color/pattern in those areas?
I added two extra layers of batting behind the sails so they look like the wind is behind them, but should have added it before stitching the appliques in place. Live and learn, but I'm not totally unhappy with the result and can do some sort of colorful stitching along the lines showing through. Just a thought.
Heading out of town for the weekend to help our youngest GS celebrate his eighth birthday, but wanted to post this first and will check back on Monday. Thanks!
