Absolutely nothing helps to photograph quilting like the afternoon sun! :) Shows off some of the sparkle in the fabric too...
I did piece the back - it is half white muslin and half mauve cotton sateen...I actually LOVE teh contrast!!!
I decided to use that vintage lace along the seam to soften it a bit...and I will add crystals to the back as well to highlight the pretty quilting...I actually like the back as much as the front ont this!!!
Part of me wishes I had used the mauve cotton sateen on the entire back. It looks so amazing with the quilting against it. But - I think the opportunity to use the lace will be really beautiful too.
I'll be working on Pamela's quilt next - she has been waiting patiently during this time off for her turn...pictures soon! :)
