I bit the bullet and undid the binding on the burgundy quilt. After all, it only took about an hour and now I am nearly half way around with the hand sewing on the back. It looks better to me, although probably any non-quilter wouldn't notice the difference.
I also outlined the hats on my wall hanging with yellow thread. I think I will do the rest of the quilting in purple though. My free motion isn't good enough that I want to highlight it. I'm not sure if I will echo the shapes of the hats or meander in the spaces. I am re-thinking the idea of writing names in the spaces, although it might work in the empty spaces beside the stars. Maybe a quote or something. In one of the bottom ones I could put my name etc. I'll have to think about it for a bit I guess.
