Default jacks---not quite finished

This has been the most challenging quilt that I've attempted, but I've only done a couple dozen. This will be for my 8 year old GD when its complete, if that ever happens!! Its been tough! There are 16 6" pieces that make up each 24" Jack block. Each 6" piece has 2 corners out & pieces put back in....and boy oh boy, that was so hard. This pattern is from fons & porter mag. I'm not sure what color to do the back in...maybe orange because the jack balls are orange? Any suggestions? Thanks for looking. I've never posted from cell, I hope pic comes over!

Wow what a great quilt. It will be worth all the challenge it has presented once it is done and your DGD is sure to love it. Please make sure you post photos of the finished quilt.

OOOOOHHHHHHH!!!! I LOVE it! It's so fun and cheerful! It DOES look tricky, but the finished product will surely be worth it!!

It's going to be so cute when finished. Either the orange balls color or one of the bold colors. What is her favorite color?

such a challenging quilt. I love it. your granddaughter will look at this quilt and trace the shapes and wonder how you did it this is an inspirational type of quilt that might just give her the bug to try it too. keep it up and finish it. it's worth it.

​Very cute blocks! The orange back would be nice.

Very nicely done! Those seams look challenging to match and you've done it well!

What a great quilt!! I think about any color would work for the back....so go with whatever you want. You can't go wrong. You have one lucky granddaughter!!

I love this pattern, but I know how those curved seams can be. It's a great quilt! I would put a multi colored print on the back if it was mine.
