    Did you use pink and green varigated thread for quilting? 'It looks very nice.

    The thread was by Sulky, I believe it was one of the Blendables line in an Antique Christmas color. Sounds strange, but it blended best with the quilt. Greens, burgundy, darker beiges. It was one of my favorites that I have done so far.

    I like how the stars look like they are blooming.
    You did a very nice job and the thread color matching perfectly.

    I love your color combinations esp in the star itself, it seems to light up. (rose and green being a favorite of mine, I admit!) Love the quilting design too

    Thanks for the reply and the pictures. I really like the way you have quilted it. Gives me some more ideas of how to do mine. I don't know why I have been so undecided about this particular quilt, it was really getting to me. Your pictures will definitely help. When I get it done I'll try to post a picture so you can see . Thanks again. Esther

    Very Impressive! The quilt is beautiful and you really did a great job quilting it...I need to take the plunge and start quilting from the front of my machine...so far have just been doing pantos...You have inspired me to get out my drawing pad and practice some quilting designs! Thanks for sharing!
