My Hand Quilting Project

I am just slightly intimidated by the colors I am using for this baby sized Single Girl. The fabric is very bold and I want to bring out the color explosion I see. The camera seems to magnify it. Scared me says, 'I really want to use a safe gray matching thread that won't show all the errors that I think I am going to see.' Instead,  I will be using perle cotton 8 in DMC thread 718, also known as "In Your Face Fuchsia"! (no...not really...) What am I thinking?

I also want this done in two weeks time for Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival.

Can I do it? One block took two days... so 4 blocks equals 8 days + 2 for binding and washing.... maybe... maybe?

  2. Go Kristen, Go!!! You can do it. There is nothing like a deadline for motivation. That thread colour is rockin'!!!
