Pumpkin Seed Quilting Design
Working on the Whimsical Baskets Quilt, I decided to add a Pumpkin Seed Quilting Designto the background of the applique center. I have always loved the pumpkin seed quilting design, it fits in so many places and always enhances the quilting. Initially I had thought a simple cross hatch design would be enough, but after adding the pumpkin seed design the quilt is taking on a wonderful new look that I am loving. It gives the quilt a lattice look behind the applique, which looks delightful...
To quilt the Pumpkin seed design I have used Aurifil 50 weight Thread. The Aurifil thread is 100 percent cotton and plays very well with the linen background fabric I have used for the applique centre of the Whimsical Baskets Quilt. Aurifil Mako thread is also a 50 weight 2 ply cotton which makes it a good weight. The Pumpkin Seed Quilting Design has enough lift to be seen, but still letting the applique be the main focus. I am loving how this quilt is really taking shape, trying to take the quilting on this quilt slowly and enjoying the process.
With this awful wet weather we are having I will be working on this quilt today and hope to have the centre finished.
