Have to show you this


amazing quilt from the International Quilt Festival…..

isn’t it beautiful!  Looks like one of those scratchboard projects we did in gradeschool, doesn’t it.  But actually that is the back of the quilt.  Here is the front:

Amazing!  I often like how the back of my work looks, but not to this level.  Free motion quilting does give the effect of line drawings or etchings on the back.  Usually I use white bobbin thread, but this artist used matching threads in both the top and bottom.   This was the only quilt in the whole show that had its backside showing!

  1. I’m not sure which side I prefer, they are both beautiful.
    A great inspiration for our next quilts 🙂
