I used dark red with a black threads running through it for the binding and it seems to bring the quilting and fabrics together. It's funny how the back has really come to life with the quilting and i really like it.

I think I will wait a moment before moving on to the next project........ok, ...that's long enough ;-) ....so what to do next??

quilting styles

I quilted the maroon border with circles - (Well loops anyway)
and was pleased with the results - it makes the quilt a bit more 'bendy' - a totally different texture to when I meander

 

I am definitely branching out because I also quilted with meandering -- 2 styles on the same quilt - what's going on?...

 

I even used 2 slightly differnt colours of thread to quilt , a purpley red and a browny red

 

and throughout the quilt I have hidden quilted hearts - near the middle on this photo ...if you look really closely..

...now just the binding to choose..mm?
