Blog Quilt #3 - Beginning to Quilt

I have started quilting on Blog Quilt #3 - I really do need a title.  Perhaps something about thread thickness?  I don't know.  Let me know if you have any brilliant thoughts.

Since the quilt is very colorful, I wanted to make the quilting quiet, but I still wanted to be able to see it.  So I chose a thread that was a slightly darker gray than the background color.  It is a 50 weight Aurifil Cotton thread.  

I decided to quilt all sorts of circle motifs in varying sizes and fills.  Sometimes I did a circle, or a swirl or other motif inside the larger circle.  I also decided to do some feathers between the arcs because I actually find them easier to do than circles in that small a space.

Here is what I have done so far.  Hopefully I'll be able to finish this weekend!
