Look What I Did!

Loopy Academy quilted table runner 
I finally got my backing pieced for my table runner, layered the whole thing and got it quilted!  I've been dithering about how I wanted to quilt it (dithering is a great word, isn't it?), so I wasn't really feeling like I HAD to get the backing done until I decided what to do.  Normally, I'm a fan of very heavy, dense quilting.  For this project however, the feathers are so big and bold, and the solid fabrics emphasize that, I felt that heavy, dense quilting might be too much.  I found a dark chocolate colored thread in my stash that matches the feathers' shafts and decided to quilt a simple grid on top.  I considered a diagonal grid, but there isn't a single 45 degree angle on this quilt, and I was afraid it might look really weird.

Once I made up my mind, everything went together really quickly.  As you can see, I used the scraps from the feather piecing in the center of the back, along with a couple of extra fat quarters that didn't make it into the top.  Now I'll just trim the edges and bind it and this project is finished!
