A little Sneak Peek

The project that currently has my attention is a challenge for the Island Batik Ambassadors. 
(Full disclosure: Island Batik and Hobbs Batting provided fabric and batting for this project.) 

I started by making a test block - just to get myself ready to start.  
Then I made some wonky star blocks. 

Over a few days it progressed along and I am at the quilting stage. 
Here is a little sneak peek - but the backing is mostly what you can see. 
The backing fabric did not come with the Ambassador program - it was in my stash.
Wait?  Are there white pieces in my blue blocks??
Do I need to rip that out? 

All of the ditch quilting is done and now the question:
Do I quilt more on it or just trim and bind it?  
For now, it will sit while that decision is being made. 

Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible. Of course if you are a "No Reply Blogger"- I can not reply. Links in comments will result in the entire comment being deleted.

Answer - you quilt more on it - LOL - ;))

It depends on the batting you are using how close you need to quilt. Most Hobbs battings are every 3.5". I love their 80/20 batting.

Such a teasing preview, who knows what should be done? Only those who can see it!

I don't have a clue but they're petty!

Congrats on becoming an IB ambassador. It will be fun to see what you design. Alas, I am not longer one but it was fun while it lasted.

I love those wonky stars. I'm really looking forward to find out what you do with IB fabrics. They are so nice to play with. Have fun!
