Just kidding … surprisingly after all the agonizing, I’m quite happy with it. Solid Plus is a UFO from 2017. It was a kit from Craftsy and I liked the top when I finished piecing it but hadn’t been able to decide how to quilt it. I knew I wanted to quilt something overall – freehand or a panto but I just couldn’t decide what would work and I was also struggling with what color thread to use. I like my thread to blend in and with the amount of contrast and the solid fabrics, there was no way that was going to happen if I used one thread color and did overall quilting….so it sat for 4 plus years.
I’d decided it was going to get quilted during this quilting marathon and had planned to use the natural colored thread but at the last minute decided the pink thread would work better … and it did.
I ended up choosing the pantograph Dollop. Have you ever been so tired of worrying about how you were going to finish a quilt that in the end you no longer cared how it turned out? That’s pretty much where I was with this one. I just wanted it done and so I’m surprised at how much I like it. It still needs binding of course but that will get done in the next week or so.
