Nice indeed! I like the sashing all the same. Wish photography could show more true detail. I'll be that sheen on the thread is gorgeous.

I normally use one color of thread that matches the backing on the entire quilt. But, lately I have begun matching the bobbin thread to the top thread, because the stitching looks better on the top side of the quilt.

In this quilt, I used several different top and bobbin colors. I have changed how I view the back of quilts -- I like seeing the quilting on the back with contrasting threads, and think it gives the quilt a more handmade look. This works for my particular style of custom quilting. I wouldn't do it for a panto or simple quilt, unless requested.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. It is good to see your familiar faces again. Life has been super busy for me the past few months, so I haven't been on the forum much.
