So here’s where I am stuck! I have it basted together with a backing that I love and I purchased some green thread that works well – I think. White worked on the front but not the back and the opposite is true of cream. Green was a good compromise :) My original plan was to go straight line 1/4 inch on either side of the seams, but not all of my seams match perfectly . . . did I tell you how much I have learned in the process of making this? My current thought is to use a decorative type stitch over the seams, but not every seam – that would be too much. And I would love to be able to stipple but I don’t want this to be the first piece that I actually stipple quilt – too much pressure. But then again maybe I need that pressure. As you can see this quilt puts me at a total loss! I have a few more pics on flickr if you want to see details. Thanks Rachel for reminding me about flickr!

    I think a stipple would look great. The quilt is beautiful!

    I just love this quilt!!! It might sound silly, but thanks for posting pictures of the progress! It’s so beautiful and inspirational for me to get some projects done that I’ve been wanting to finish. Maybe someday I’ll have enough time to put together a quilt for our room! :-)
