This was an odd quilt. Odd shapes, odd colour combinations. (As always, my opinion only! I don’t make them — I just quilt them.)
How to quilt it? Well, for starters, I stitched in the ditch around all the dark shapes. I was thinking of doing something geometric in the pink areas, but I only had three small spools of various pale pink threads from different manufacturers, so I decided to do an all-over motif so that it wasn’t obvious where I changed threads as each spool ran out. I mostly did a combination of feathers and spirals.
