Default Thin Blue Line Quilt

I finished the quilt for my nephew who retired from the police force. I wanted to use the same color thread as the white, black, and blue parts of the quilt and a different color bobbin thread but the bobbin thread showed on the top. I know it has something to do with the tension but I tried and couldn't get it right. I quilted this on my sweet sixteen.
I just did loops and stars. I'm not real good at FMQ and need more practice but I am getting there slow but sure. Thanks for all of your help in making this quilt.

It looks great. I find that i like the look when the bobbin thread comes to the top.
