This is gorgeous! I love both sides! We usually just block one side and back with a large fabric. This way would have made two, but I bet he was surprised both sides are equally beautiful! Love your work! Did you do your own quilting too? ...now if you just wanted it out of the house, I'm sure you would have found plenty takers!-lol-
Haha. I wanted it out of the house because it meant that it was finally finished. I normally just do one quilt top but this was a very special uncle. This way, he got 2 quilts in one and can change the look if he gets bored with one. And yes, I do my own quilting. Still having major back problems and quilting this really played havoc on my back! With the thanks I got for this, it was definitely worth it.
Beautiful job! I love it/Lillian
Thank you. Hugs
This quilt is just beautiful Shisha. An heirloom and I love the fact that you've double sided it. It's in such manly colours too, such a wonderful job. I know you are happy to see it gone, but I bet it was wonderful making it for your favourite Uncle? Well done, love Chris
Thank you so much Chris! For the back side, I used all the scraps I had from the front and incorporated them in the back. The uncle came over just after xmas and thanked me over and over and over again and told me I should not have done that for him! lol
Absolutely stunning. 2 quilts in one. The hours that must have gone into that.
Thank you. Yes, there were just a few hours involved! haha
Thank you cuties for all of your kind comments! The New Year is almost here so I am hoping you all have a wonderful New Year!
Absolutely gorgeous. The back is almost beautiful as the front.
Beautiful gift, I can see why he loved it. It is beautiful and your Mariner's Compass blocks are very well made.
Love your quilt
A work of art. Absolutely gorgeous.
You did a wonderful job. I love the way you did the back. He will cherish this for ever!.
Gorgeous...he is very lucky, indeed!
this quilt is beautiful, he will surely enjoy it.
It looks fabulous. I never tried this size, it must have taken a lot of time. Great work!
This will be treasured what an awesome job you did! Love it. I miss making the big quilts like this. They are a lot of work but so rewarding. Glad you remembered to take pictures. Wonderful gift of love. Pam
That is beautiful.
Wow! That is a lot of love stitched into this beautiful quilt. Kudos to you for getting it finished.
He's very lucky. You made a beautiful quilt.
