Lucky me, I have the day off from installing kitchens with my hubby, so I intend to sew as much as possible!
I've been free motion quilting wavy lines through the squares that make the star design.
Once all those wavy lines come together, they form intersecting circles - which shows up beautifully on the backing. Okay, they're not perfect, but somehow, that seems to add to their appeal, in my opinion. I think I'm going to love the quilt back as much as the front when it's finished. ;o)
|Backing fabric is from Denyse Schmidt's Chicopee line.|
The thread I'm using is a 50wt cotton thread from Wonderfil's Tutti line (which is their line of variegated thread in 50wt. - it comes in 41 colours!) and the colours on this spool are a perfect compliment to the fabrics in my quilt top.
I'm very close to finishing the quilting on the star and will be changing the top thread to green when I start quilting the background. Wish me luck finishing! ;o)

Hoping your Wednesday is a great one!
