First of all, Free Motion By The River just featured Stitches and Kisses April Shower Sue!! LOOK HERE!
It fits perfectly!! I want to paint the kitchen–this wall will be a light creamy yellow, and an accent wall will be red. Honestly, the EXACT shade of red she chose!! I’m SO EXCITED!
Now, MINE needs to be finished and mailed no later than Friday…..and I HATE it. I don’t know why—I just don’t. Too much white perhaps? I have some variegated thread in red/white/blue. But probably not enough to do the pebbles I was considering. But it is supposed to be modern——-so maybe pebble as much as I can with the variegated, and then switch blue and red and do patches??!! Maybe the dark pebbles will cover the white? What do YOU think? The more ideas, the better.
Oh–and DOUBLE thanks for all the comments about the ancient churn dash flimsy. I think I will combine every one’s idea. I will CAREFULLY ditch on the machine and bind. And then will hand quilt each square. It may take forever, but it will be both useable AND hand quilted!! That way it’s not being super stretched on my longarm for too long, too. I was worried about the seams. Who knows how that old thread will hold up.
peace and pieces,
