Whew! Here is my Boom 9 quilt top, just finished last night. I love it! The blocks that are all the same are Broken Dish blocks made by me. I wasn't sold on using black until I found the perfect black for it (the second picture is a closeup where you can hopefully see the subtle grey flowers). Excuse the mess! Sewing trumps cleaning; I'm sure most of you would agree. If you've never done a Boomerang Swap, I highly recommend it. It was so much fun.
Now, what color backing should I use? And what color thread to quilt? White thread will show up on the black sashing, but black thread will show up all over the blocks.. What do you think?
