Bridges Quilt finished
Finally, a finished quilt, hurrah! Or let's say ANOTHER quilt finished. I am getting there. Soon I'll have all projects finished and can start cutting into new fabric. Yay. Can't wait.
This quilt was lots of fun to make. It really was an ad hoc project I started to use up some cut offs, and as usual, it turned out much better than expected.
The top is called Amy's Bridges and the back is called Fassett Bridges.
I decided to use straight line quilting, my favorite anyway.
The problem with having two sided quilts and hand quilting them, hand sewing everything in fact, is that the quilting on the back never looks absolutely right.
Maybe I am too much of a perfectionist and the appeal of handmade items are those quirky imperfections (???)
Would love to hear your thoughts on that, quilters and friends.
I just don't know how to deal with that once I decide to sell some quilts. Will have to give it a proper think.
And the back: Fassett Bridges

Hope you like it.
