A kilometre of Threads

Almost 500 straight pins to stabilise the top but - The border of feathered cables is finished and the sashings are almost half way done.  I've used over a kilometre of thread already.  Neither of these two threads were ones I had chosen to initally use on the quilt!  That is how it goes  - sometimes the quilt says it needs  something different to initial thoughts so I go with the flow.

Still debating whether to go back and put a fill behind the cable with the same thread as the sashing.  Sititching in the ditch between the red border and the outer feathered border have made it look almost right.  I'll see how I am going for time later on.
