    What a beautiful LC quilt and your quilting is great. It breaks my heart to hear of all the sorrow you have had to experience lately. Surely this quilt will daily be a visual sign of your love and caring for your friend.

    I think that dash of green is just right. Again, Log Cabins are my favorite and this one is outstanding. I love that Starlight layout.

    Penski -

    Yes, this is quilted with navy blue on the top and a medium/cornflower blue on the back. Since the top has such contrast between the blue and yellow there was no way to "hide" the quilting. If I had time I would have searched for a blue and yellow veriegated thread, but we wanted to finish as soon as we could.

    We audition thread by laying a couple of feet of thread on the top to see how it looks. You can't really tell by holding the spool up because the color looks much different in small doses than it does all bunched up on the spool. Throw a few pieces of thread on your top and see what you think. Be sure and post pictures!

    Thanks everyone for all the encouraging comments. We gave her the quilt on Saturday and she loves it. We put it right on her bed and her granddaughter says she hasn't stopped talking about it. We are so grateful that there was something we could do for her.

    Darren
