So, I've decided to go with simple.
(You're probably surprised, given that I've made this project so complicated up to this point.)

The back of my stained quilt will be all black. This will make my desired quilting pattern so much easier. I'm going to stitch in the ditch around each of the puzzle pieces, so to speak.

Previously, I mulled over making more blocks and piecing them into the back; however, for this option:
1. I would have wanted the back blocks to be mirror images of their counterparts on the front (as far as shapes, not exact fabrics).
2. I then would have tried to line them up exactly so as to have my quilting be stitch in the ditch around the puzzle pieces on both sides of the quilt (where applicable).

I am pretty pleased with this little detail though:
Mitered corners in the border!


  1. Oh exciting :-) Good luck with the quilting, and those corners are fab!

  2. It is beautiful already! And that is the best looking corner ever!

  3. It looks fantastic! I wish I could do miters like that:-)


Talk to me. You'll make my day. :)
