{Post 1,683} Had My Doubts

After I complete a quilt top, the greatest challenge faces me.  What quilting design should I use, and what color thread? I purchased two different orange threads for quilting, one solid, and one variegated. I have some pumpkin quilts in the works. I planned to use one of them on this quilt, but they just didn’t speak to me. I used white. This is a machine quilting pattern I found years ago and have adapted to my own style. I L-O-V-E the texture it gives, but it is very time intensive. The quilt is made from muslin and upcycled men’s shirts. it measures 68” x 76” Very modern for me. I tend to lean towards the traditional patterns, but this is for our newly made-over living room, and it will help bring out the orange, blue, and brown in the rug (also pictured for your convenience).
