I had an idea I wanted to try for the strips between vertical rows, so what better way to try it than on a small piece. If you think it looks narrower at the bottom, it is.Here is a closeup of the quilting. I did ditch quilting first and then came back and added the 3 rows of purple stitching. That strip of soft beige/yellow was too wide and plain and needed something to balance it with the rest of the piece. It was 1 degree when I got up this morning. I think it sounds like a good day to quilt a quilt.
