White rabbit blog hop

 Hello all,

Welcome to my day on the White Rabbit blog hop hosted by Carol @  

  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.
