    You did a lovely job. I really like the soft colors and patterns on the OBW quilt.

    Both quilts are beautiful. Your timing to post these was perfect for me as I'm in the middle of making a quilt/spread without batting. Do you have any tips for me when it comes to putting the top with the backing & quilting it? Right now I'm still making my blocks so have a ways to go yet. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    I think the sandwiching is the same as if batting was included (I still thread baste in a grid, the old-fashioned way, since that works for me). My mistake was using Aurifil for all the quilting. That was fine for the SITD, but I should have switched to a heavier thread with a sheen, like Glide, to have any chance of the stitching showing up in the setting triangles and the unpieced strips.

    I hope you post pics of your quilt/spread when it's done.

    They are both great quilts. I love paisley and 9-patches, so the first one is a winner for sure. But that OBW - Wow! You used perfect fabric for it. Stunning!
