Colleague Rita points out that the lovely grey thread that I bought last week for the quilting doesn't stand out as much as it might.
Most irritatingly, I think that she is right.
So before I plough on any further with my FMQ stars, I'll give this darker grey thread a go - possibly the dark grey for the top thread & keep the paler grey for the bobbin thread.
If it looks better than the block and a half I've done, I can undo without too much bad language.
Happy Tulips - This pattern is making the rounds of blogland. Fabri-Quilt has the pattern on their blog, Inspired by Fabric, and it looks great in all of the versions...
