I’ll admit I’ve made my dogs pose with quilts before, but this time, I was working on the back of the quilt and saw Fate’s back peeking through under the quilt. So I quickly got my camera and took a picture. I think she was just about to fall asleep, or tear through my studio chasing her toys. You never know with Fate.
I changed the back of the quilt since yesterday. Added a piece of blue on the side that made all the difference. Oh and I turned it upside down too.
But then I got to the point of tacking the quilt. I realized that I would have to choose which side the knots from the yarn would go on. Usually, but not always, I tie the knots on the back of the quilt. I thought of doing a little of each, knots and no knots on both sides, but in the end I decided the knots could actually work on the other side of the quilt. And I chose the color yarn that I thought would work best on the side that the knots are on. I’ve never done that before.
So my first experiment with making a quilt back and back is all done. I still don’t have it all figured out, even though I’m happy with how it came out. I think I’ll have to do a few more before it sinks in. But I think that’s a good thing, it’ll keep it fresh and ever-changing. And not only am I happy with it, but so is Liz, she likes it enough to want to buy it as a gift for her husband. Thanks Liz.
