Free Motion Quilt Challenge

A bit more done - showing front and back

Finished the triangle I had forgotten, and did the small border.  That was quite interesting as I have not done one like that before...
Now I need to work out the large border. 

What I forgot to say is that I have starched this fabric much more than I have previously done.  The backing particularly.  It crackles like paper.  Not quite how I meant to do it - but it is working so much better. 
I was tired of using the spray starch, and made up an amount in a bucket and dunked the whole piece of fabric in there...and then rinsed it afterwards, as I found if I didn't rinse it, the starch was in lumps when I ironed it.

It will be quieter this evening   ♥
