About 15 seconds in to it I thought "My that black thread really doesn't blend with the Yellow blocks, but I am sure it will be okay". About 30 seconds into it I thought "Oh dear, that black just isn't blending, but I am sure it will look better if I just quilt a bit more." About a minute into it I thought "Stop Silly Girl, its not getting better and you don't like it at all !!!!!" (When will I learn to stop after the first initial doubt. ) One hour later, I finished "reverse sewing" aka unpicking that One minutes worth of indecision.
Of course, like all quilters out there, Reverse Sewing is not my favorite thing to do in the world. I can handle it okay when I have to unpick piecing, but unpicking quilting . . . . Grumble, Grumble, Grumble!!! But, was it worth it ??? . . . Absolutely!!!!
The Medium Grey is soooo much better. It really and more importantly, I really love it!! I still used the beautiful Charcoal Black in the diamonds and even used a different background color. I know shocking!! Instead of using my favorite 402 Pearl, I used 403 Almond. It looks awesome on the grunge background!! All of these threads are So Fine by Superior Thread. I love how well they blend :)
And even with the bumpy start, I did finish the quilting and now all that is left is to bind this Metro Hoops quilt. And wouldn't you know it, I have 4 bindings made, and the one that I actually need is still yardage sitting next to the finished ones ;) Gotta love it.
So I am off to make a binding ;) I promise to share more of this quilt on Friday when it is my stop for the Sew Kind Of Wonderful Blog Hop :) It started Monday and so far has had 2 wonderful stops. You can see the full schedule here ;)
Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
