I used a cream colored So Fine thread for most of this quilt, both in the top and bobbin. I even got to test out my new Fine Line Continuous Curve rulers on the diamond designs above. Love these rulers!
I treated each group of blocks as it's own entity and quilted them one at a time. There are similar design elements in each block group, but they are all different.
The design in the blue on-point blocks ended up reminding me of corn growing in the fields.
When I got to the flag on the top of the quilt, I matched the thread color to the fabric color. I wanted the flag to stand out on it's own and I was worried that it would be too much to have all that busy feathering and swirls in the cream thread.
Thanks so much Debbie!
