..... but, when I showed the completed backing to Sweet Adorable Hubby he smiled. That might sound okay, but normally he gives me a lot of positive feedback and praise. I knew I needed to rethink it.
I cut out those strips and threw them into the strip basket. The print I really wanted to use from the front only had a bunch of 7-inch squares and assorted strips left, but I pieced it so I could have large enough sections to use. That's a lot of seams!
Straight-line quilting on the background with white thread and stippling on the heart with matching colors was just the look I was going for.
It made sort of a shadow of a heart on the back, which I especially like.
Isn't the binding perfect? Sweet Adorable Hubby helped pick that out, too. He definitely has a good eye.
I had a great selection of Black and White prints available to use.
So now My Pulse Quilt is in the hands of the United States Postal Service, winging its way to the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild.
