You did an awesome job! It looks great on that red with yellow thread!
Two things struck me about your first example: 1. love the idea of quilting the pattern number in the sample, and you obviously are saving them in a book, and 2. In the upper left hand corner the paisleys are starting to look like hearts. I think it is probably possible to make that a purposeful design element. I agree with Danielle and Pat, wonderful quilting!
Hi Mary. Your contrast of yellow on red looks fabulous. I'm jealous as I'm currently still in purple-on-purple land in my sewing room. : ) I hope that my brain will figure out soon how to choose quilting thread colors that will pop out and enhance the quilt. Great practice piece!
