    I finished a two faced quilt!

    I showed you a peek of one side of the quilt a while back. Now it is finished and will be delivered to my GD when they are here for Thanksgiving. She wanted a Christmas quilt. I decided to make two quilts, same pattern, different fabrics.
    Getting them lined up together to quilt was a job. I also made a double facing to match each side of the quilt. I love the way it turned out.
    I used gold thread on the Christmas side and lime green poly on the other. I free motion quilted most of it on my Janome......

    Excellent quilt! I love the idea of it being double sided, but I imagine getting it all lined up was tough.
