I used a charm pack of Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey for Moda, and Kona White.
"Find a Design" page. Here is the flickr set of all her designs. I picked "Over lapping Arches".
It's so fun quilting on my new HP Sweet Sixteen. It stitches so smoothly.
Remember, I picked a light weight back, because I wanted to do an over-lay with Joann's flannel backed satin (kids prefer the silkiness these days).
Then, I pinned the back to the quilt, silky side out, trimmed the backing to match the top, squared-up everything, again, and stitched all around the edge, 1/4 inch.
Time for binding. I wanted to try a thinner binding, so I started with a 1 3/4 inch wide strip.
I thought it would be hard, but it wasn't. You just have to be precise. I like the thinner binding, but I think my favorite is still a 2 inch width.
