So, I ran into a hitch with my nephews' quilt quilting. Basically, I was using the wrong coloured thread and thereby ruining the look of the patchwork top.
Here's a quilt I had started quilting many years ago. It was made quickly from a grey vintage cotton fabric I found in my thrifting along with some great 30style red flower print and complementing green and yellow prints. And since then it's been languishing and being moved around the sewing room.
Rather than put everything away I decided to quilt my old project. So far its tricky and I'm wishing I knew more about quilting patterns rather than ditching everything.
