    Blue and Yellow Quilt just back from LAer

    Recently got this quilt back from the LA It is pieced on both front and back. Will let you decided which is which since my friend and I can't agree. I know which I intended to be the front and which the back, but neither my friend nor my LA agree with me.

    The one I consider to be the front is from a pattern called Chain Letter designed by Daniela Stout and is a Cozy Quilt Designs. This is the first time I ever tried to follow a pattern. And also the first time I set on point.

    The back I just made up as I went...

    Both sides are beautiful, so whichever is facing up is the "front"! A neat idea for a double duty quilt. Thanks for sharing.
    God Bless,

    Love the two sided quilt. I can't decide either which is the front as both are very pretty!

    That is one beautiful quilt, or should I say two beautiful quilts. Love both sides.

    Why do you have to choose, when both are TOPS in my book! Love them!

    i just noticed that your LAer got the back and front lined up really well. from all the recent discussions here, it seemed that would be nearly impossible. kudos to the LAer.

    Beautiful quilt. I like both but if I had to pick one to show up all the time it would be picture #2. Great job.

    Both sides are super! I think first one with the large blue border would be my choice for the top.

    I love your quilt! I know the pattern for chain mail so I know what one is your top, but the back is really pretty too!

    It has no back, it is a two fronted quilt. Very pretty.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Both sides are gorgeous. I think my favorite is the first one. . .simply because it has more blues.

    Both sides are wonderful--I would have a hard time deciding which side to show! I have always loved blue and yellow quilts.

    I don't think it matters which is front or back, both sides are equally beautiful.

    That came out sew cute. I love the colors and designs on both sides! I say the front is the side that is cleanest!
