Lime Green 3-D quilt, Part Four

This is a continuation of the posts about the making of the 3-D green quilt.

I next turned to the background for the globe.  Since I wanted to use fabric that I already had, I used a gray grunge dot fabric.  I wasn't sure if that would be enough for the background, or if I still needed to add lime green circles.  So, I made a few of the circles and pinned then in place.  Here's the before and after pictures showing the difference.

I decided that I liked the plain background the best.  So, I stitched it down and the top was all ready to quilt.

I hope you agree that it didn't need a ton of lime green circles on the background.

P.S. I know that the original intent was to reduce my lime green fabric stash.  But alas, I had to buy 2 yards MORE in order to do the binding technique, which I'll talk about later.
