Beautiful stitches! I like that you chose black, it works perfectly here. :-)What brand is this thread?
I would never think of quilting in black but love it and now will porbably copy you at some point. Must buy more black perle!
I love the marching ants! So happy you went to the dark side!
Love it - nice job!
I like marching ants :) When I was younger I occasionally drew little ants on my wall, crawling in a line in quite natural positions. It was behind and below my bed so my parents didn't see it until I moved out. They wanted to be angry, but I think they were quite impressed :)I think it looks good - bold, but with stitching as neat as yours, you can afford to go bold :)
It looks so great. I am interested that you baste with big hand stitches rather than pins. Does it hold it together better? Thanks :-)
I don't think I have ever hand quilted with black thread (and I have done about 50 quilts), but I like the look of yours. It looks just right with the colors of your quilt. I'm impressed with your stitches. So perfect!
The first time I quilted a quilt with perle cotton, I used black. It is one of my favorite quilts! If you are going to spend all that time hand quilting, it might as well show. Lol! I love your quilt.
Yes, but marching ants are awesome! Actually, I really do like it. Keep it up =)
mmmm now that you mentioned it, yep it's marching ants. It looks awesome,,,,just don't use it for a picnic quilt-you might not able to tell the difference between the stitched ant and a real ones!!
This looks great - your stitches are so even too.
I love this quilt so much. Really enjoying seeing it develop on Instagram :)
Your wonderful hand quilting really gives this quilt added interest, that little-something-a-bit-extra that eludes some!
I love how the darker thread looks! Great hand quilting!
looking good to me and your stitches are so even in size, hand quilting is a relaxing way to quilt rather than all the tension machine quilting gives me, in the process of machining one and not having fun with it
I love the black! In fact anytime I see black stitching I castigate myself for not using it more often LOL!
It looks fabulous with the black stitches! Love it!
They look very neat, just like all your work.Lisa x

But very even marching ants! But seriously, your stitching is lovely and it looks great. Love the black.
Black is my favourite colour for hand quilting...it looks great!
