Sweet Thimbles update

The sweet Thimbles quilt from the Too Good To Cut challenge is now quilted!  The outer borders are a small stippling pattern and the inner thimbles are an all over feather and curls design.  I am very pleased with how the quilting has turned out!  The only "Aaugh!" moment came when I realized that the back was 1/2" shorter than the quilt top.  Luckily my daughter in law gave me enough fabric to extend the back and now the quilt is all complete and waiting for the binding!
Of course, now I still have a small box of fabrics so I will begin again and create something that coordinates but has a different feel!
