On the advice of a creatively brave friend of mine, I quilted it in navy blue thread rather than white (my usual, very safe choice). I’m really happy with the way that the dark thread shows off the quilting. It meant I had to be sure to do a perfect job!
I bound it in an aqua polka-dot fabric from the April Showers range. It links nicely to the fabrics in the star, and ties it all together.
Mum loves it. I think my grandmother wants to pinch it! I’ll just have to make her a different one.
