I don’t know why I am struggling with this challenge so much…. I have the letters fused and stitched in place and now have to figure out how to quilt it. Do I go with invisible thread or use actual thread…I do have some bottom line threads that are gray and are very thin.
Usually I don’t have too much trouble figuring out how to quilt a quilt. I have this one on my design wall and plan on looking at it for a while to decide what to do.
- Stitch around the letters. Stitch around the outside of the moon. Continue to stitch circles around the moon maybe 1/2 inch or 1 inch apart in the sky area being careful not to stitch through the letters. Then how to stitch the area of the moon? Circles?
- Stitch vertical and horizontal lines running right through the piece with invisible thread or bottom line. This pays no attention to what’s on the quilt at all.
- Stitch nothing but concentric circles centered on the moon. Small circle at the center of the moon and getting larger and larger stitching right over the letters. Or not stitching over the letters and outlining them?
- Stitch around the letters, stitch around the moon, stitch the patterns that look like craters on the moon, stitch around what seem to be individual pieces in the sky. Not my top choice.
- Stitch around the letters, stitch around the moon, stitch circles on the moon, and stitch rays coming out of the moon rather than circles.
- Stitch rays starting at the center of the moon and come out from there and stitch around the letters or run the stitching right though the letters.
What would you do? Maybe you thought of something that has not come to me.
