I am not too crazy about the thread I used to quilt this piece. The Aurifil is just a bit to thick, or perhaps the needle was too small, I don't like the way the stitches are so pronounced. Perhaps the colour purple is too dark? It could have been lighter. So many variables. Every now and then this happens. As a rule I make the right choices, in my mind anyway....and it is still a gorgeous Quilt!
