The next picture is of the backing. I used cream colored thread on the back and I think it showed off the quilting really well without being overpowering!
I am shipping these quilts out to Terri in the mail today and I can't wait to hear from her and I really hope that she likes them as much as I do.
Next up is Annie! She is amazing! She is still new to the quilting world and she is so enthusiastic about everything that it is infectious! She hadn't even seen my work yet and she gave me not one but FIVE quilts to quilt in our first meeting! Wow! Talk about faith in me! I am so lucky that she picked up my business card and decided to call me!
This is the first quilt that I have completed for her. She made it for her Mother in Law and I just love the colors!!!
Although she is SO not a floral person, her mother in law is. This is the only quilt out of 5 that she is allowing me to put a floral design on and I just love how it turned out! I picked a pale pink thread for the top and I think that it pops the quilting out just enough so that when you are looking for it it is noticable, but if you want to look at the piecing it is not overpowering enough to take away from the original design of the quilt.
Annie, I am so lucky that you chose me to be one of your quilters and I can't wait to see what funky quilts you come up with next for me! In the meantime...here is a sneak peak at the second of five quilts...
It is almost done and I hope to share the finished quilt with everyone tomorrow...in the meantime...Happy Quilting everyone!
