Today we are starting a new ‘Agony aunt’ type series of features and we would like YOU to be involved.
For each feature we will show you a query a fellow reader has come to us with and we would like you to help that reader out with your advice and opinion.
Our first query comes from Moira, who says
“This is my fifth ever quilt (2 finished and 3 WIPs). I finished the quilt top (picture #1) and want to quilt it using straight lines along the length of it using white cotton thread. I just can’t work out what to do with the back. I’m trying not to run out and buy more fabric (currently my other half gets palpitations when the postie comes!) Colour and colour combinations is where I am least confident so I’m looking for some advice. Would it look with a plain cloth back (teal as in picture #2) with some odd patchwork squares or should I go with a patterned back? If plain cloth, will it look strange with the white quilting lines or should I use a teal bobbin thread?”
So what do you think? are you able to help Moira our with her plea?
Please let us know your thoughts!
And if you have a question or want an opinion on your WIP then send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
