I saw the back first thinking it was the front. I thought the triangles that had the smallest stitching in them were actually fabric. I thought how cool you found thread to match your fabric in the patches. Then I had a good laugh when I realized it was all thread. Obviously you did well on giving different effects with the thread.

Hey Deb! Yeah, the quiliing showing on the back makes it looks like the front. The last six months I made several two sided quilts with a serger quilt as you go method. It was a way for me to practice FMQ on a small scale. If you would like to see what I mean here is a link to some of those quilts.

I agree with Deb...I thought the back was the front and had to go back and read your description again and realized it was the one I gave you advice on before! WOW. Very, very nice work and what a way to practice! :)

Hahaha...Yes, two-sided quilts fo not have a back. I guess. Thanks for the encouragment. I know we are own worse critic and most are not going to look at our work with magnifying glass. With that said, I am still a wobbly in many stithces. How can I minimize wobbly stitches?

WOW--You did a great job on this! I see from your comment that you spent a lot of time planning before you started the actual stitching, and it really paid off. I love the way ESS makes the piece so precise too. I also love the two-sided effect you've created.

Hi Wendy!, Thank you. Isn't the two-side effect fun?! I was glad to apply some of the techniques I am learning from Cindy.
