It's surprising how the stiitch-in-the-ditch lines almost seemed to line up on both sides, which were comprised of 16.5" blocks for each of the two designs. I did quilt-as-you-go.

As a newer quilter, I've only done SITD quilting, but I wonder if a meander quilting may lend itself better to having different sizes of blocks on the two sides of a reversible quilt?? Gotta get up my nerve to try non-SITD quilting on my next reversible scrappy adventure.

Again, thank you all so much for your inspiring encouragement.

Both patterns.............fantastic!!! What a beautiful quilt you have made. Being a lover of scrap quilts, I would say you have a "Gold Ribbon" for this one. Quite an endeavor and wonderful results. Thanks for sharing this treasure.

Wow! Missed this the first time. Beautiful work! Backs can be so boring, I think I will try reversible.
