This is the start of a new quilt (fabulously embroidered by Glenda). I need your advice, however. The dark red sashing is being quilted using light gold metallic thread. I was unsure at first, but I do love how it turned out. My question is whether to fill in the alternating diamonds or not. My thought was that it would give it a nice texture – the blank diamonds would puff up and give a nice texture. However, I’m just not sure I’m loving it. What do you think? Hurry and vote here.
