This is the back of my Clematis Quilt

When I discovered Melissa Bula's quilts at the Folsom quilt show a few weekends ago, I was awe struck by her work, the dynamic WOW upon seeing the huge appliqued flowers...and then as they were hung so you could walk around them and see the back I was wow'd again seeing the beautiful colorful stitching on the back. So I too loaded bobbin after bobbin with colored threads to match the top stitching threads so I too would have "another picture" if you will on the back of my work.
And here it is!

This is the back of my Clematis. I have finished the top stitching and tomorrow I will make the binding and sew it on (after squaring up the piece of course and trimming off the excess fabric/batting/backing...When that is done you shall see the front as well.

I strongly recommend double clicking on the photo to see the details of the stitching. ;-)

Point of interest: It's been 13 days from when I started this quilt from the building of the design table to finishing the top stitching.
Happy Weekend to all.
