Big stitching progress

Remember this quilt? 

It's the latest one from Jacquelynne Steves, and the Quilt Along just seems like yesterday!

I sandwiched it (turned some backing fabric over to the other side, to have it be a little more muted, the color seems to work better) and got out some of my beloved Presencia threads.

I'm using fairly large stitches as quilting goes -- some call it big stitching, and some have called it sashiko -- I call it relaxing!

I just love the fabric colors, and the colors of the Presencia . . . yummy!

I use a large hoop. I know some folks don't, but that's how I roll!

I will have to post again on this project soon, and show you the back -- it looks so cool!
