Welcome to my day on the White Rabbit blog hop hosted by Carol @https://www.justletmequilt.com/.
The challenge was to use white in a quilt, use rabbits, or use a white rabbit. I knew just what I was going to do. A lot of my quilts have white in them. I am however trying to get away from white backgrounds and go creams when I need a light background or even a light shade of other colors and black or super dark navy when I need a dark color background. Just for a bit of variety. What colors do you like for backgrounds?
On to the quilts. This one, I call rectangles. It was a fun one to make. I put it in my county fair last year and got a blue ribbon on it. I love it. I quilted it with an all over medium meander.
This second one has been a work in progress since 2020. We were in the process of remodeling our home. We wanted the master bedroom to be painted a light green. Well, the bedroom got painted, but the quilt didn't get done in time.
In 2022 we moved, and we have 3 guest bedrooms, all with beds needing quilts. I am still working on quilts for those beds. The top is done, but needs quilted. I started quilting it, using white thread, it waa perfect on top, but I didn't like it on the green background. So then I tried to use green in the bobbin but I had pokies coming through.
A friend, who longarms, suggested a green on top, to match my backing. So, I finally unpicked the quilting I had done (about 1/2) and think I will quilt with green.
Have you ever quilted with a contrast color? I would love to hear your suggestions.
I appreciate you reading my blog. I would love to hear your answers to the 2 questions I asked.
