This is such a fun post! The six stained glass quilt blocks are done and ready to be arranged into a wall hanging. Auditioning to find the best color of thread is also going to happen too!
Lay out your six quilt blocks on a design wall if you have one, or on a table or floor. Somewhere that you can stand back and take a look. Rearrange to find a look that you find works for you. Sometimes even taking pictures of the blocks helps you find an arrangement that you like best.
Try arranging them vertically in a row. This would make a great stained glass wall hanging for a long and narrow wall or perfect for a bed runner or dresser.
Instead of alternating colors of the stained glass blocks, try lining them up in two rows.
Once you found an arrangement of blocks you like, it’s time to decide on thread! This is fun as it let’s you enhance your wall hanging. For example, if you chose a white thread, it would really stand out on the purple fabric. While a purple thread would blend into the shades of Northcott’s Stonehenge Gradation Brights in Amethyst but pop on the white fabric.
There’s no reason you can’t do a few different color choices. Keep in mind we’ll be talking about quilting the stained glass wall hanging next and that can have an impact on your thread choices too.
For this quilt, I went with a dark purple thread and a light grey thread in the bobbin.
Our stained glass blocks are complete, a block arrangement and thread we like have been decided on, now we’re ready to quilt! Check back to see how we quilt it!
