    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......

    Sorry the last two are blurry. I wanted you to see both sides of the binding!

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

    Yes, I cut two binding strips, one to match each quilt, then seamed them together.....

    Excellent! You certainly did a great job. I have not tried a two sided binding yet.

    I just love the quilt. I love both sides. I can't imagine making both sides come together to quilt. It is just beyond my ability to think.

    I am going to have to try that! I like to use 10 inch squares for my quilt backs, and I like to pick something completely different from the front, which has made picking binding a challenge! I never thought to seam binding together. It's like a light bulb AHHHHHH! moment Thanks for sharing, and once again your quilt is beautiful!
