Adding stitches

Remember my string quilt? These two blocks have been pieced, but not yet stitched.


This section has rows of black stitching added to emphasise the lines. I am pleased with the way the dark stitches add definition - what do you think?

The black stitching works really well - lifts the colours and adds something.

Makes all the difference Erica... looking good!

Being a fan of stripes and strips, I've always liked this piece. The stitching, and the resulting texture, is a great complement.

That is amazing. Doesn't it change the way the quilt looks? Is it just ordinary quilting thread or have you used a perls/DMC type thread?
