Quilting Continues

I finished quilting the first of three Quilt for Kids I have remaining. I'm going to take the backing and pull it to the front to bind.  This is the first time I've done this, so wish me luck!

I ran out of thread - both the bobbin and the spool at the same time!  It was also a good time to clean the machine.  I had to switch colors, but I don't think the color difference (light green, beige) is that obvious.

The photo is of my Moldy Cheese quilt.  The pattern is drafted by Lori and she called it Cheese and Crackers.  I changed it a lot, because I put in the little green squares without organizing them by colors, I took out the half blocks and added a row of checkerboard for a border.  I am hand quilting it.  I think I am going to quilt sunflowers in the cheddar, so even though the quilt is nicknamed Moldy Cheese, it might have a more pleasant formal name.

How in the world did you manage to run out of both threads at the same time? LOL - that's pretty good! Love the look of your cheese and crackers, that's going to be a VERY pretty quilt.
I did that with the binding for my first quilt. I must tell you that although the quilt itself has held up really well over the years, the binding did not - it has shredded at the fold, where it's folded over the quilt. I need to trim it and bind it again. It's the only one I've ever done like that, so I don't know if it's the fabric or the technique.
