Would like to see your comments on how I'm doing good or bad, I want to hear both. So that I will have space to learn and grow.
Thanks to Leah for the insight into the color of thread to be used. Since, I choose a light color fabric(pale pink Kona solid) I didn't want to go with a dark color thread. So, I choose to use matching color thread for quilting. I do like the way it turned out. I didn't want to break the thread too often so from the sqaures to the other hearts and feather I continue without breaking thread and filled out the hearts with micro-stippling. I still left out the inner hearts and the surrounding area since I wanted to see how Leah would tackle the micro-stippling. Can't wait for this Wednesday.
Here is the picture of the front of the Wholecloth quilt: The marking are still on I haven't ironed it yet.

2.I just read your post completely so changing my second questions. You had mentioned that we need to break threads 16 times. My question is that instead could we travel stitch on the lines of motif if we're using the same thread for the microstippling as we did for the outline of the motif? This way I can get away with breaking the thread.
3. Did you choose to use different color of thread for microstippling for video and picture purpose? Or do you suggest to use different color thread than the one used for outline because the motifs will pop more?
