Then I started on the low contrast Snail's Trail quilt. I have been told that it is a very hard choice because it is the contrast that helps with the layout. And I used the lower contrast of the 2 off-white/beigy colors with the print.
Yes, why yes it will be difficult. I watched Jenny's tutorial and she laughed as she said that she is a chain-stitcher so if she makes a mistake, it happens on all of them. Did I listen?
It seems true that this is a harder pattern to follow with low contrast fabrics, but I think it will end up quite lovely. Pictures to follow after the computer guy comes.
There is enough quilting work to do now that the wedding present is basted. As I looked at it, it seems that doing the horizontal channel stitching will work for the majority of the quilt but perhaps not for the center appliqued blocks.
