Heide's quilt update

Yesterday I finished the circles and they took all day.
Today I've got 3/4s of the background done but have run into a little problem with the pale blue thread. It's too pale for the background and looks very nearly white, so I'll have to wait a few days for some darker to arrive. It's a holiday here so I can't order until tomorrow.
I'm having fun playing with the background stitching. I suppose I could start on the fireworks whilst waiting for the light turquoise thread.

  3. Sally, I would be interested in what wadding you are using?

    Do you use the same wadding for everything or do you change depending on what you are quilting?

    Thanks
