Happy Scrappy Quilt ~ Finished Quilting!

It feels so good to get back to the Happy Scrappy quilt.  I'm nearly finished.  This sewing session I completed the concentric circle quilting.  This pattern is by Guicy Guice.  I received it in a previous month's Quilty Box.

 I quilted concentric circles about an inch apart using this pretty variegated thread; it's #305, Poly Quilter, by Superior Threads.  As you can see, every now and then I stitched a  machine embroidery motif for fun.

 But mostly I just went around, and around, and around with a standard straight stitch.

 I wanted to take a quick clothesline pic of the quilted Happy Scrappy top.  The wind picked up and Trail Mix did a casual photobomb.

 More wind, and Trail Mix casually strolling away to investigate something else.

Another big gust.  I love windy quilt photos.  It makes the quilt seem "alive".

Now I'm ready to make some binding.  I like to sew binding that matches the outer border, but in this case my outer border is a multitude of colorful triangles.  What color should I bind with?  Please leave your suggestion in the comments.  Thank you.

  2. I love this pattern. Your version is awesome. Good call on the circle quilting.

  3. I love the circle made with what my son would call a "fancy stitch!" Super cute!
