Here is the top of the quilt I have made for my DQS9 partner... It is inspired by this Anka's Treasures design and uses Kaffe Fassett prints and shot cottons. I was originally going to hand quilt this with perle cotton, using the respective colors in each area, but now I am a bit concerned the handling will stretch some of the bias pieces and result in bubbling. So I am going to machine quilt it, but the question is how? and what color of thread? I really like this and wondered about using a dark gray thread? Or perhaps color coordinated thread in horizontal zig-zaggy lines following the lines of the hexagons? And seeing the final product, I am wondering if I should go back and add a white or charcoal outer border What do you think? My brain is a bit fried today so I just can't think!
