I have been thinking a lot about self preservation lately, about all the ways that one must hold on tightly to one’s sense of self even while everything else seems to be going absolutely haywire. These days I find myself attracted to color and warmth. Not surprising then that the construction of this simple flannel quilt has overtaken my mind and eaten up every moment of free time. I can’t wait to finish it!
Current dilemmas: wool or cotton batting? (A little worried about shrinkage issues since I didn’t pre-wash my flannels.) What color thread to use for quilting? I usually use a white or off white cotton thread for all my quilting but I’m not sure how that will look against the olive green solid flannel I’m using for the backing? Thinking perhaps of a light brown/tan thread instead? If anyone has any thoughts/suggestions, I’d love to hear from you!
