Itty bitty quilt - Hour 7

The machine quilting is taking a bit longer than I expected but I'm really pleased with the results.  I free-motioned straight stitch around all the letters and did some big meandering around the white area of this quilt.  Whew, that hour flew by quickly. 

I still haven't decided what to quilt in the "plaid" part.  I'm thinking of machine stitch in the ditch on either side of the blue plaid strips.   Still thinking...  
I like how it looks from the back.  The words can be seen easily.

It's only about 1/3 done.  So I estimate another two hours of machine quilting... which pushes the finish off until later this week.  

No problem.
