I’ve just about finished quilting the prayer quilt. I may put a little more of the Perle quilting beneath the bottom of the diamonds. I’m not sure yet. It’s a bit hard to see the Perle quilting in the whole picture so I’ve included a couple of close-ups.

Thank you all for your input. I decided to go with the most popular option and quilt the background in large Perle stitches.

I’m happy with the result. Now to bind it.

I can’t say I’m looking forward to it as I’ve developed an allergic rash on my forearms which I think is caused by this red backing fabric.

And please all of those of you who have told me that I should ALWAYS wash my fabrics before I use them can feel free to now shout in unison “I TOLD YOU SO!” I am duly chastened. 🙂 (not to mention itchy)
