This is the quilt I made for a favorite uncle. I finally got it quilted and it was gifted and received this morning and he loved it! The last picture is the back of the quilt. I have to admit that I am thrilled that it is finally finished and out of the house! haha Thanks for looking!

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.

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.
