That dark blue (above) in the border has little red/orange things in it, and it was on sale, so I swooped up 6 yards years ago, thinking it would be a good backing with those little red/orange "flowers". Later I realized the red/orange "flowers" were lady bugs and the idea of ladybugs as a backing did not seem the best choice.
Determined to use what I already have, I cut 88 backing squares at 8.5 in. My plan for quilting was this wide sweeping "dwirling" but I had unfortunately forgotten that this sweeping design is great for a long-arm, but I have a Domestic Sewing Machine and with almost every stop and start came a little "glitch" - crooked stitch, driving me crazy - it's difficult to control those glitchy stitches! Lesson learned. Previous "dwirling" on other quilts was successful when keeping the movements small, and hand-sized. Where was my brain?
