Stringed Top Finished

This one took a little while, didn't it?

Better late than never, though, I say, so here is the finished quilt top:

Materials used:
1 Honey Bun (I used Moda's Hello Betty)
About 1/2 yard solid white
1 yard solid green.

And let me tell you thank goodness I only needed 1 yard of the green, because it was all I had of this particular shade, and I would have been in trouble if I needed more as I can't remember exactly what the solid is. I think it's Bella Solid in Pistachio, but I'm not sure...

I'm not quilting this one just yet. Mainly because I haven't enough batting, but also because I haven't decided how I want to quilt it yet.

Should I stick to straight lines, or should I attempt some free motion? Suggestions most welcome... :-)

For the backing I'm using a black and white print, which I hope will complement the black and white prints in the Honey Bun. This is also from Moda, but the name of the print escapes me now. I've got it pieced on the vertical with some leftover strips.

Quilting soon. 

Or not so soon. We'll see...

Hope everyone has a happy week ahead!
