Once the dreaded basting was done on the stork quilt, the actual quilting went very quickly. The rationale in choosing what to quilt was to make it secure enough to launder well but to leave enough"pouf" for softness.
All that's left now is the outer border and binding, which is one of my favourite parts. Hopefully there is a bit of that yellow to be found but I'm not holding out much hope. It may end up blue, like the centre.
I used Konfetti thread, which is a 50 weight cotton by Wonderfil. Konfetti has become my dependable "go to" thread, and always works well in both piecing and quilting. I've ordered in a bunch to have available during the N.S. Fibre Arts Festival workshops in October.
