Black Quilt top

finally finished, yesterday I decided to piece a backing, had one meter of fabric with a flame type pattern, no idea where it was purchased so decided to do a striped, pieced background, still mucking around with the configuration, not quite enough of anything, but will make it work. Purchased a spool of machine embroidery thread to quilt this little sucker with, this is my first attempt at winding the bobbin, hmm, looks a little loose to me, yadda ya think?the thread is a Robison-Anton, "Twisted Tweed" polyester, two threads twisted together, I then wound a bit onto another bobin by hand and had a bit of success with that, I can see a big learning curve looming with lots of practicing needed. That should keep me out of mischief!
