I got some thread work done on the 'background'.  I particularly wanted to lighten it up under the chair because there isn't much value change.  I accomplished this by putting some free-motion thread work in a lighter shade of gray over that area.  I'm still not sure it's light enough, but the quilting, if done in a lighter shade will lighten it up even more.

Here you see it pinned and ready for quilting.  This is the part that makes me nervous!

  1. Had to go get more thread! I had bought some purples while in Canada, but they turned out to be the wrong shade of purple. I went out to Bernina NW by Northgate. They have a great selection of threads. I took the quilt with me this time and found the perfect threads, I was surprised how red they were. They are so nice there - they gave me a Bernina Project Bag, too! Thanks Bernina NW! Sewing
