WIP, going a little crazy

For some reason, I've been super busy this week. I've had or will have something to do almost every night this week. Add to that somewhat busy days and you get little sewing time. I still have a list with too many things on it! Ahhh, I can't wait for the weekend!!

So even though I finished a top and a back since last week, I swear I have made no real progress in the last two days. I need to baste this darn thing so I can quilt it.

I posted last week where I got the star patterns from to make the top. Love the ample white space.

Here is what I chose for the back:

And speaking of is my plan:

I'm a little nervous about how my white thread will look on the pink polka dot back, so instead of doing real dense lines, I think I'll leave at least an inch between each line. What do you think? Should I change my back to accommodate my quilting design or do you think it will look ok?

I'm linking up!



  1. I think the white on pink will look fine. I've done that before.

  2. I think it will look just fine. :)

    I am currently hand quilting a stars quilt and used some of the same stars in yours.


    1. Thanks! I'll have to check out your stars too!

  3. What a fun, bright sampler! I think the white thread will look completely fine on the back. Your quilting design looks great! Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday!

  4. That looks great. The white will look fine on the back.

  5. Love your sparse stars!
    I always have your same concerns with front thread color on the back.... I try to remember that when planning, but usually don't, LOL!
    Great quilting plan!

    1. Thanks! I spazzed out for no reason!it turned out well!
