The quilted sashing and colored portions of the rick rack and the unquilted backgrounds. There were 70+ of these triangles and I could not face filling them with a stop-and-start motif. Today, inspiration struck.
I did a loop-de-loop with continuous stitching all the way through each column.
I think the big loops complement the rick rack nicely and continue the soft curves of the other quilting.
A bit hard to see, but look at all the texture now. It is no longer a cheating quilt!
