Took advantage of a cool morning on a shady back patio to prepare Phoebe Dreaming for quilting. I got some good advice from Ellen at Hip Stitch yesterday. I plan to quilt in a spiral, silly me! I’ve sprayed adhesive on the backing and the front, and put in extra pins to hold everything together. I will test the laws of physics to keep it all smooth in the tight space of my standard sewing machine. I picked up some red-orange variegated thread for the inner spiral and will use a blue-green variegated for the outer stitching. I’ll keep red in the bobbin to blend into the backing material. That’s the plan at this point. Reality may have something else in mind.
