pictures don’t really show it.
Doesn't matter. We won't remember it by February anyway.
“We won’t remember it by February “
or or even next week. Lol
Good ol' "Hot to Trot" is stitched and so is her pieced backing.
Can you find the seam in the backing fabric? I hope not. (Seam runs through the big sunflower things.) I am seriously considering quilting this with the backing fabric on top and free-motion quilting around the pretty flowers which would be a lot more fun than trying any SID work with all of those straight lines. I am so very tired of straight lines on this thing.
And here's the quilt top, folded in half, hanging on the design wall with the backing fabric, folded in eighths, just looking peaceful right now. I did not put all three borders on the quilt top ... too much work for my left arm/shoulder and I said "To blazes with that idea."
I think I will give Cecil Faye a good cleaning and oiling and then give myself a rest for a bit before I haul these pieces and parts down to the basement. The weather's too nice to spend time in the basement with Lily Aurora.
I think your idea of quilting from the back is a really great idea. Your quilt is really coming along and hopefully you will be enjoying a finished quilt in the near future.
ditto what Ami said about your thought to quilt from the backing. That's a great technique. I've done it once with a poinsettia fabric and it looked fabulous from the front.
Going around the flowers on the backing would look terrific from the front, giving it texture but nothing so detailed that would get lost in the strips.
I like it a lot...it looks fantastic.
Quilting from the back is a great idea. That is the perfect fabric for it!
I can't find the seam in the backing fabric; it's gorgeous! It will make a great quilting template, too. It's all going to be so beautiful!

chiming in to agree with the others...quilt around those flowers with the back topside!! that will look WONDERFUL!!
Well done, Judy! Your back looks totally seamless. And I agree that is it a great idea to quilt the flowers on the back. It's raining here in Illinois, so you may have some coming your way and you can head downstairs.
