A little quilting.......

This quilt has been laying on my sewing machine cabinet for about 6 weeks waiting for inspiration for the border quilting.  I had black thread on the machine from shortening a shirt so I tried random diagonal lines starting at the green/gold border and going to the edge.  I'll trim the (linty) batting and see if it lays flat.  If not I'll add a few more lines.
I have shown this quilt before but don't know any key words to search for it so I'll show it when it is done.  I loaded it on the long arm and only quilted the dark areas.  It has every color in the rainbow in the alternate areas and I want to ditch quilt them on my regular sewing machine.  I hope this works without any problems.
Before I left the basement I loaded the frog backing fabric for the frog Stack and Slash quilt that I started in May when I gave the workshop.

I love what I can see of that quilt. And the frog backing is delightful.

Even bits and pieces of your quilts look pretty! Can't wait to see the whole thing again.

From what I can see, that quilt looks wonderful.
But that frog backing fabric is fantastic! It made me smile instantly when I looked at it!

I agree it looks wonderful from what we can see.

I caught up with you since I have been busy the last few days. So.....once again amazed at all you have done. Congrats on the quilt sales...I love that basket one that someone was lucky to purchase. Dang it.

Sounds like you did well in your tests so far. Crossing my fingers all keeps going well for you.
