I need some help from all you seasoned quilters!
I'm working on this T-Shirt quilt for a dear friend's daughter. I am almost done with the top - just need to even out the bottom and add my borders (which I plan on doing today). Then I will be ready to baste and quilt it.
That is where you come in. I have been struggling with how to quilt this baby.
Here are the options I have come up with so far. Keep in mind that I always feel "free motion challenged" but I refuse to give up.
1. Put on the walking foot and do straight line quilting.
Cons: with the black and white contrast of the blocks - what color thread would I use? If I use black,
would it be distracting across the white blocks? If I use white thread, would it be distracting across the
black blocks and sashing?
2. I could do an all over stipple using varigated black/grey/white thread and avoid the "wording" on the tshirts so it stands out more?
OR - I'm open to any other suggestions that you all might have. So jump in.. give me your 2 cents.
