The thrill of seeing a quilt come together is like the completion of a painting, the birth of a child, the publishing of a book! Yes, some quilters do get giddy
and do a little dance (guilty) during the process.
As I was
in the previous post, I had added this color option.
And really spent way too much time coordinating prints. I should know by now, that when I sew them together, it’s all for naught!
Squares assembled, check! That was fun!
Then I put the sashing between the squares, I love the contrast!
I added little white squares in the center, even though that is not my accent block,
but it was a measurement thing.
There on the bottom right, is where I am going to write my love note. More on that later! I was stumped as to which fabric to use for the backing,
Riley Blake Stripes
Or Bonnie & Camille Bliss
I know I have Bonnie and Camille on the front but don’t feel that it also has to be on the back. Why? Because I hate putting fabulous fabric on the back when I can use it for the front of something more visible. However, I heard in an interview about or with Steve Jobs, that his dad used to say that your work should look just as beautiful in the back as it does on the front, or something along those lines. And I think that is a great goal to strive for.
