    The stitches DO show up, and quite nicely! Love it!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Beautiful. Your quilting is perfect.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I would want my stitches to show if they looked liked yours!

    Your quilting is great. Like Quilter1, I've thought about it just for something to do in the evenings. Curious, how long did it take you?

    Your quilting is great.
    I did my first whole cloth with white thread, next time I plan to use
    a pale blue.
    I thought all my work was lost with the white thread

    I think DH is a keeper! And so is your beautifully quilted quilt.

    I honestly love the stitches showing. It makes it pop as one would say.

    Very pretty! When you quilt that well you should show off the stitches! For me - I stick to busy fabrics & blended thread to hide my stitches

    What a darling guy - he's so proud of your work! You should be too. If you've got it - flaunt it. And you've got it!
