Enjoy looking.

I have only made 5 (reversed) quilts since I learned how to quilt, 9 years ago. I had no intention of making quilts either for sale or to give: i just wanted to learn...
I now have 2 bed size reverse quilts and a reverse laptop quilt that I am keeping but I keep making another quilt and another quilt etc... you know how it all starts don't you?

And, I starched the fabric like crazy, which really helped me with more consistent 1/2" seams, because the fabric held its shape better. Lastly, I ironed the seams in opposite directions so I could nest the seams. It worked so well!

I did limited quilting, just some stitch in the ditch for the colored triangles using red SoFine thread with silver metallic Yenmet thread in thenhalf-circles and the piano key border. Too bad the pictures don't show
