It is a bit more evident on the back. The backing shows the quilting very well because it is so dark.
Her other one is what I call "Stars Fell on Texas", or the Red White & Blue Stars quilt. It's very much in Americana fabrics, and she specifically asked for meandering stars. I started this in a great variagated blue thread, but quickly abandoned it when it became a pain in my ass with thread breaks. The cottons often are harder to tension, but that coupled with being variagated was my demise.
I ended up using a 50wt navy blue polyester. It was a tad hard to see quilting, but is much more user friendly.
And bound for SC, is really a very girly and pretty quilt. It was made all from vintage sheets (I think). If not vintage sheets, then all vintage fabrics. It's what I coin a "Gramma's quilt". I just love these old-fashioned prints. It wasn't that impressive just as a top, but once quilted, I fell in love. It's soft & snuggly, and so pretty. I can't wait to see how Michele binds it. It's not my best picture becasue I took it in the dark, but I wanted it to show the wonderful texture of the quilting. It will wash up so soft & crinkly!!
