What I'm hand quilting

Funny, when I laid it out I thought it looked like a star. Now I don't see the start! I'm quilting this with heavy gold thread, like what is used to topstitch denim jeans. My usual giant stitches. Another experiment in using just a few colors. I had this laid out for a while, then had to pick it up and forgot about it, now I am back to it. The olive fabric is a shot cotton of lime green and purple that optically blend to an olive.

Sort of a soccer ball, the olive being the ball shape.

O.K so not sure if this is good or bad but the first thing I saw when I looked at the quilt was a Toblerone candy bar!!! Maggie in MI

That looks like a big hand quilting project, no matter how big your stitches may be!
