Getting busy .....

I put my No Name Triangle quilt away for a while! I will get back to it soon, and then I'll use the walking foot to finish the circles.
I'm sure I'll love like it when it's finished!
in the meantime....
Starry, Starry Night is getting some love!
I did some stitching 1/4" on each side of seam down the string sections- you can't really see it, but it holds the quilt together nicely.
In the navy sections, I am using, yellow, green and purple for the intersecting lines.
I'm really happy with it, and the voile backing is a dream!
My helper offers some sage advice on thread colour!
I was very happy to find Isacord thread locally, and tons of colours too!
in the borders I am doing some FMQ.
Yikes! lint and fur on navy fabric is not a good combination!
 It's a long week-end here, as Monday is a Family Day.
Not that it matters to me....I'm retired!!!!
Have a great week-end everyone!
