I have chosen to hand quilt 'Blanket Bay' with perle thread. It's taken a while to get back into the quilting rhythm. I struggle with perle thread to get my stitches and gaps between them even. With regular hand quilting the smaller the stitch the better. I need to get comfortable with bigger perle thread stitches. So far I have been using a mustardy-gold thread. I may use leftover variegated blue for the blue borders. It's feeling nice and soft with the wool batting.
