Ok, I’m still not happy with the quilting for Roses for Rosa, so here are some pics. Here is what it looks like up close. I’m happy with this because you can see the thread colour changing and the way the colours match the fabrics.
From a distance, I like the way the outlines make white whirligigs stand out. But the colours in the thread are not really distinguishable and the yellow fades into the white fabric, making the quilting look patchy.
So what to do? A couple of people have suggested more quilting so I could do more outlines inside the first ones. But will that work or will I just make it look worse, especially if the other outlines don’t follow the first one exactly (I have a tendency to go a bit squint which is ok for a single line but might not look so good if there are two).
