Here is the quilting. The background is a simple grid. The circles are bobbin stitched with a pearl cotton size 12 thread. The blue (above) is some that I dyed myself. The gold (below) was purchased from Valdani threads.
On the circles I've added some extra fabric pieces to make them do a little spiraling. To finish the edges I will probably just do a zig zag all around the outside. I want to leave the red background strips sticking out beyond the edge, as long as they don't sag.
Also, I've uploaded a picture of me. Believe it or not, it's a passport picture. Better than the previous ones, for sure.
