    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.

    It took me a few minutes to figure out what you thought was wrong with your quilt/quilting because I couldn't see anything wrong with it!! . It's pretty to me but I am rather new at all this quilting stuff. I do a lot of ripping out also! Whatever you choose, I sure it will be lovely.

    I think it is perfect as is. You must be happy with it too. I would try to match the thread to the main color in the fabric.

    Hello, ladies!
    Many thanks to each and every one!
    I'm in the middle of the unstitched... I think do a test on a piece of fabric with a color gold that you advise me and another with a thread color burgundy dark was my idea.
    And then watch the test, just quilting the top!
    Thank you so much for your tips!
    I forgot to mention that I do not have many threads quilting (in my country are not available), so my colors are very few. They are on my wish list this year, I dream with all colours!
    Once again thanks!
    A big hug to everyone!
