Vintage Blocks Have a Home!

Whoot!  It's quilted and I am thrilled with the back....the front's not bad either.

I started to quilt a separate design in the borders but after looking on the back, I decided it detracted from the back....I love the back.

So, I did a freehand overall. 
You will find it interesting that I used "Grizzly Bear" So Fine thread by Superior.
Look how it magically blends with different colors.  Here is looks rose colored:
Here is looks blue 
It blends nicely with the yellow. 
It actually takes on a bluish/green tone in the yellow. 

I will bind it in the morning.  I need to decide what color I will use.
I think I will sleep on it....

That turned out beautifully! Thanks for sharing your thread choice. I'm not sure I would have even tried it, but it looks great!

I love how you have taken pictures of how the thread goes so well with all the different colors used in the quilt! This is a fantastic thing to teach to customers because they don't necessarily understand how this is so :) Thank you for the post and wonderful quilting of course!
