And now–thread details

Started the quilting on the stone part of the arches. Simple lines…and then I decided that simple was just right.

I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy with so little stitching!

Then I had to figure out the quilting on the peach ‘sky’ part. What kind of design did I think I wanted? Something curvy to contrast with the straighter lines on the stones. I don’t usually do too much planning on  quilting designs–I usually just go for it–but this piece has required more thought all along. I actually got out a couple of transparencies and tried a couple of different things! So unlike me…

And then came the thread question…nooooooo…too much…too much. Time for a lunch break and a long walk.
