Here's my second weekend accomplishment!
I'm happy that this big quilt is finished! This is only the third large quilt I've completed, and it's definitely a different feeling of accomplishment than when I finish a baby quilt.
Since the quilt design reminded me of a stained glass window from the start, I decided to fit the quilting to that theme. I quilted about 1/4" from the two seams inside each black sashing line.
On the "windows", I quilted random straight and bent lines as I did on a larger scale on the bentobox wedding quilt. It has a neat effect and kept quilt turning to a minimum. Win-win!
Here's a sneak-peak of the back:
I like the binding, though the diagonal lines got lost in the busy pattern - I guess I could have saved myself the work of making bias-strip binding...
Now, a funny thing happened when I turned the quilt over for a photo of the back. I actually like it much better! (Ignore the washed-out photo - the remnants of hurricane Danny left me with a grey dull day for photographing...)
If this quilt stays with me, I'd leave the back up, the front is so busy! :)
Now the question is - what do I do with this quilt????
