I am used random colours of perle cotton, and stitching in straight lines done the length of the quilt. Straight should be taken loosely here. I am not marking the lines on with anything. I am just starting at one edge and working my way to the far end. I use seams and such to keep me sort of on track.
I love the way the different coloured perle cottons stand out or fade away when they appear on different fabrics. I also love the texture all this stitching is giving the quilt.
It's approximately 80" from one end of the quilt to the other. It is going to take me a while to finish this.
