I added a brown civil war reproduction fabric for the first border and then a small print burgundy fabric for the outer border.
I have no idea how I will quilt it, I would love to play and do fancy quilting, but I still need lots of practice with my new quilting machine.
I bought some of the new Bamboo batting to try, when pinning, I found that sometimes the pins went in easily and other times they were hard to push through the layers and even pushed a little of the batting through to the front...could have been that my pins were blunt, we'll see how it goes under the machine.
I must add tho, that the batting does feel lovely and soft to touch.
I have this quilting book on order and hopefully will arrive very soon.
I could take the easy way out and just do stippling all over, or perhaps cross hatch quilting, but I'll wait and see if this new book will inspire me to be more adventurous and try new quilting techniques.
Dental appointment today...hope it doesn't hurt too much!
