Check this out. It's the back side of a quilt I'm quilting for a friend. It's the raffle quilt for next year's "High Plains Rendezvous" a huge re-enactment event that's going to be held near Fargo, ND in June 2009. The backing fabric is actually black sateen and the thread is also black, but it got over-exposed when the flash went off. I'll take more shots as I get further along with it.

He misses milking so much, and the daily chores.  He gets restless.  He is not the woodworking type, so house repair frustrates him.  He really misses the animals.  We are boarding some heifers for our neighbour again this winter, and that helps for a few hours.  Right now, he is like a restless 6 yr old, bored and wants my attention, tee hee.  Cathy

And it's a blessing to be wanted!

Oh, too true!  I think he is also missing "His little girls" a lot too!  Cathy

You have a reversible quilt going on - the back is prettier than the front!  Wonderful!  You are so skilled!  Thanks so much for the update.

Most of the quilts I make are almost as pretty on the back as the front. I like the solid colored backing fabrics because it showcases the quilting so well.

Yes, it really does showcase the stitching.  The variegated threads are lovely, too.  Good job!

Too funny! No variegated thread on this one--that's just an optical illusion!

So, you're skilled at optical illusions, too!  Your skills know no bounds, Annie!  On the other hand, maybe it's just my eyes that are playing tricks. :)
