I'm on the home stretch on Halloween Houses, or should it be Haunted Houses. Save that little problem until later.
I'm just about to start quilting round the outside borders. The letters are multi-coloured.
this link to see the fabric. It's really curtain fabric, but put through the washing machine a couple of times it washes up beautifully and is great for Wonky Letters.
So how do I quilt it?
I've started stitching the ditch round the letters on the black fabric only and it's taking an age. I've only done two and that took me most of yesterday (sigh).
I then thought about doing Freehand Fans, but if I do those with black thread won't the stitches show up? Or how about clam shells, but still in black? I'm using quilting thread (no floss or perle - they are too thick).
I really want to get this finished. It's been hanging around too long!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
