E's and 3's is the name of this background fill that I free-hand quilted on my clients baby quilt. It can be quilted tiny, like in the signature quilt a few posts ago, or large for a great edge to edge design.
I want to mention thread color here. Since the quilt show I have had a few people ask me how I chose my thread colors for a quilt so thought I should include pictures of my threads with my posts.
When you first look at this quilt you probably think right away to use white. White would be fine but I would only use white if I do not have any colorful threads that matched.
Since the backing fabric was this fun peachy floral I picked a peach thread for the bobbin. Then I chose a light green for the top. I could have used the peach on the top and it would have looked just as nice, I just prefered the green.
