I used the leftovers for the back. While I've become a big fan of pieced backs, they sure can take up a lot of mental and creative energy. The back is where this quilt got 'delayed'. Finally, I just reminded myself that "It's the back! So get on with it!"

When I took a closer look at the Castle Peeps prints, I saw that the castles on the yellow Castle fabric were not on a straight line, but rather on a gentle curve. I thought doing the quilting on curving lines would give me some of the same texture as the straight line look but not drive me batty. It worked!

For the thread, I used Sulky Blendables that had fire colours in it. While it didn't have any purple in it, it did have a smoky grey that worked really well with the purple.

I'm so glad this quilt is done! I'm saving this quilt for my niece to use when she comes to visit us. She loves all things princess at the moment and while this isn't pink, I'm hoping that she'll still enjoy dreaming beneath it.
Happy, happy Friday!
