After staring at my quilt top for about 4 months, I finally made a decision on how to quilt the sky background. I was so nervous to do it thinking that I might ruin it, and in the end it's definitely not perfect, but I love the texture that it gives it. I shouldn't have waited so long. I used invisible thread on top, aka monofilament, and a cotton thread in the bobbin, put my feed dogs down and just went for it. Next time I won't wait so long, but half my problem with machine quilting is just deciding what design to quilt. There's so many great ideas out there.
