I did the same again with the yellow and ochre stripe, and used a thread with a dash of purple to go with the maroon and navy stripe. It can be quite tricky quilting on the striped fabrics. If the thread doesn't show up particularly well the quilting design is swamped by the stripe. If I use a thread that contrasts too sharply with the stripes, then the effect is too heavy, so I often opt for threads with plenty of contrasting shades in them.
Here goes for Week 379:-
Many thanks to Frédérique for linking up with photos of her Friendship Day and showing examples of Japanese quilting. If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and see more.
Remember, FMQ is FMQ, whether your machine was made last week, or it is older than your granny.
Here are the very easy and slightly elastic rules:-
1. Link up with any recent post, ideally from the last week but within the last month, which features a free motion quilting project, whether it is a work in progress or a finish.
2. Link back to this post in your own post.
3. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and say hello in the comments box.
