I am downright red from being so giddy. Hello to everyone coming over from the Tallgrass Prairie Studio, thanks for stopping by. I finished this “Feeling Blue” Quilt pretty soon after Jacquie’s Selvage quilt and the quilting styles I used on them couldn’t have been more different. This quilt was such a stretch for me, she wanted geometric and I am used to flowing, whirly stuff. But I was up for a challenge. She already has pictures of the quilt on her blog, so I won’t bore you with repeats. Instead, I am going to show you what I love……the back of the quilt.
Let me set the scene. Jacquie lays out this fantastic quilt top and the first thing I thought of was “thread color”. I strongly prefer to use the same color on the top and bottom, and her front and back were both pieced with dark and light fabrics. We agreed to match the threads to the front and let the design show on the back.
It was so neat to turn it over and see the designs that weren’t very visible on the front show up so vibrantly on the back.
When I laid it out and showed my husband, he said “This doesn’t look like anything you have ever done before!”. I told him that was what I was going for. Jacquie was so good about letting me do what I wanted. I love that she pushes me creatively!
Thanks for looking!!!!
