Pinning and getting ready to quilt
You can see the cross hatch marking on the blue blocks. I will quilt that with some shade of blue thread. The black borders will be cross hatched as well, but I will quilt that in black. The spacing of the cross hatch in the borders will be about twice the size of the spacing in the blue areas. I want to maintain the integrity of the black and the blue in the quilt. I do not want to darken the blue nor lighten the black with the quilting. If you have been following this quilt from the beginning you know how hard I worked to get the contrast between the blue and the black.
I am leaning toward the title "Midwinter's Night." Since this abstract quilt seems like you are looking through a window I thought that that might be a good title. I thought about the blues of winter, the frost you see on a window, and the long dark nights of winter.
Linking to Nina- Marie.
Thanks for reading.
