I love the backing. The machine quilting suits the quilt. Love the updates.

I too can't decide.........front or back . I love them both !

thank you! I love both sides as well

this looks so modern now. did you use dye to darken the white or did you actually redo the blocks? just shows how an old fashioned style can be modernised. My kids would like this.

I think I almost like the back more than the front! I love both sides. :)
