Night and Day Quilt Finally Finished

I finished the binding on my Night and Day quilt over the labor day weekend. I had intended to double quilt this project using turquoise and purple Aurifil thread.  After spending two days machine quilting I decided that I was happy using only turquoise.  Who knows, maybe someday I'll change my mind and add the extra quilting...

The day after I finished the quilting, I attended a local quilt guild meeting.  The demo for the night was fine machine quilting.  Our teacher mentioned that you should never cross over existing stitching when quilting.  I just chuckled to myself because I had spent the weekend breaking the rules.

Thanks for hosting this challenge Tonya.  I have really enjoyed working on this quilt and seeing all the other creative ideas everyone brought to this challenge.
