Very nice! I love your use of variegated thread against the navy background. Using a solid background allows for fun free motion stitching!

Thanks. This was a little challenging for me to machine quilt. I changed machines a couple time to find one that worked better for me. I had some top thread looping on the back (tension problems I have yet to figure out. I decided to leave it as the front looked good. A little Fray Check on the back should should lock the stitching I hope. I have been looking at the completed projects and am so happy they are there to learn from each other and for inspiration. Cheers, Daine
