Carousel done

I finally finished the carousel quilt.  I was begining to think I never would.
The thread matches the front so well I decided to try and not let any of it show. That made for hard quilting - I couldn't see where I was half the time.  I've never had the thread match so well before.
 At least it's done (except for the binding).
I also got in a little embroidery work over the weekend

I think these are so cute. They take alot of thread though.
There are 12 designs and I managed to get 9 done. At a little over an hour apiece that's not too bad for a weekend.

That quilting looks wonderful and the embroidery work is so cute. That is a lot of time in each design!!!!

Lovely quilt - I get lost when I use contrasting thread, so can't imagine. The new embroidery is very cute.

Dark thread on dark fabric is SO hard to do! Well done! The quilt looks great!
