@BrendaP I am in awe. That is so beautiful. And you did it so fast too...I am a slow crafter at the best of times, so I always admire people who can do it swiftly. Those of you who have read more of my posts will know I am not a great one for wall hangings, but this, I would give wall space, it is gorgeous.  :thumbsup:

It is so cheerful, what about a cushion? I think it would look lovely!

It's awful stuff

I am rather glad to hear that, actually @Lowena as it tells me that it may not have been entirely down to my inexperience that I could not get on with the stuff...

I tried invisabubble thread once many moons ago, and found it broke very easily. That may have been because I had very little experience, or because my invisibubble thread was rubbish. Dunno. Never had any inclination to repeat the experience

The front is black, and yes, @Iminei I may well need the lint rollers, but what the heck! This is the first time I intend to keep the quilt for myself. If it needs washing more regularly, or lint rolling, then so be it.  :P
I rather like 3 myself, I think I might risk it, and if it is more blue than black, well, I will just make sure nobody can see both sides at the same time. I just love the fabric...
In the meantime, and continuing on doughty website, I have found multicoloured thread...do I dare to quilt it with that? I have always been a coward and used a colour that more or less matched the fabric I am using.

Wow, thanks @Acorn, that is pretty much EXACTLY what I was looking for (scurries off to drool looking at Doughty's offers)

That’s a lovely idea @Iminei , but in the end I have gone with an ide provided by ‘Im indoors; for once he is actually sufficiently interested in one of my quilts to provide a suggestion. I’m quite pleased with it, to be honest; now to find a backing. I have nothing suitable in my stash and hope someone might have ideas. I don’t want to spend a fortune, but this is the first time I have made a quilt to keep for me, so I want to find something I like. Maybe stars or a multicolored batik....
