Jim's quilt finished....


Here is the final picture of Jim's quilt - finished.
He is a die hard KC Chiefs fan so he will LOVE this *blanket*. heehee
(He has been whining since Christmas about "when was he going to get a blanket?")

Now I know that many many quilters put backings on quilts that are pieced. I've seen some really nice pieced backs.
However...I've never done that before but ....
I decided to try doing a pieced back and put it on Jim's quilt.


Here is the "back" of his quilt......


Look familiar?
Yes. It's the one I showed you a few weeks ago when the borders were on.

Even tho Jim loves the Chiefs.... the colors just don't *fit* with the color scheme of the TV room where this quilt will be used.

Soooo ..... when it's being used the red & yellow Chiefs side will be out so Jim can enjoy it.
But when it's folded and laid nicely on the chair.... the *back* will be showing.
Fitting in very nicely with the room.
Everyone is pleased!

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.
We spent a quiet day out on the patio and walking through the back yard pulling a few out-of-place plants.
Watched the birds and enjoyed the patio.
Happy thoughts!

  3. The quilt is very pretty, Linda, and perfect for Jim, since he is a Chiefs fan.
