it's okay for thread to show on the back?
i did change thread colors as i went. i saved the north, and south points for last. they were longer than the bed of my machine. i know from past experience that you need to quilt the large majority of the QuiltSmart interfacing, then come back and do the 'details. otherwise it can shift and cause all kinds of headaches.
this is the first time i've used my swirly vine as a 'filler' in a large area. me likey!
i like the look of the pebbles. i haven't quilted pebbles in a long time!
