Red & Aqua Finished

Whoops, don't think I showed you the finished Red & Aqua quilt yet!

Here it is, borders and binding on, labelled, finito!


Quilting in the ditch made the quares stand out nicely:


You can see the quilting on the back, as well:


I tried a new way of labelling: no hand-sewing involved at all, I just sewed it on as a loose label with the binding. I also put the washing instructions on the label as symbols now, so whoever gets the quilt won't forget how to wash it!


I keep thinking that the quilting is boring on this quilt, but the lack of dense quiltihng makes it really fluffy. I am considering quilting some motif in some of the patches, but haven't decided yet...

What do you think? Leave it as is or add some more quilting? I was thinking maybe the frog with the crown from the backing, quilted in 3 or 4 blocks on the front?

I don't know...I kind of think I'd leave it as is! I like the way the squares stand out. And the wash instructions are great. The new owner of the quilt is going to appreciate that.

I think I would leave it as is too. I follow the "rule" that the amount of quilting should be equal across the quilt...but then rules are made for breaking :0)

very cute! I love how the squares are popping up because of the quilting.

I like the way the squares jump out at you with the way it is now. It looks comfy and soft that way.
