Such is the case with this 48" X 60" mission quilt I'm making for the current Stitchin' Mission class. It was easy enough to pick out 80 prints to cut into 6-1/2" X 6-1/2" (unfinished) squares, and then piece them together, but a whole extra effort to begin quilting it.
I'm quilting with a bright yellow Aurifil #50-weight thread. Though all the quilting is a meandering snail shell design - that's my name for it - on the lone white, tone-on-tone square, I quilted a cross.
When the quilting is finished, this quilt will be used for the binding lesson at the June 1 class.
