Super happy to have another quilt finish to show you.
Here's the back of the quilt. . .
and the binding . . .
Oh, and here's the front of the quilt . . .

For my 'many trips around the world' quilt I decided to use an old-ish quilt top for the backing. I had made it back in April 2014. It was a mix of ideas & blocks, all blending together but I never really liked it when I had finished it. It went to where all unfinished projects go, the wardrobe, and stayed there for quite a few years.
Recently, when I was sifting & sorting through the wardrobe, I spotted it and decided I could use this top on the back, #partyinthequiltback!
I had Leeanne from quiltmekiwi add some quilting. From the front you mainly see straight lines, diagonal, quietly crossing over each other. I like that the quilting does not distract at all from the patchwork, but subtly compliments it from the front.
The binding was my last chance to highlight my favourite colour in this quilt. I chose a yummy grape fabric, 'inventory' from AMH's conservatory range. It also worked well with the back, an added bonus around here!
Finished quilt size 48" x 62".
Love the idea of the reverse side of a quilt getting it's moment in the spotlight too!
Linking up with Kelly for 'needleandthread Thursday" here
Until next time, Linda
