What was even more amazing was the back. This was not planned in terms of how the quilting would look like on the back but when I was finished quilting the doves and looked at the back I was so pleased to see that the doves were lined up so nicely between the two rows of pine cones.
In the four patch blocks I quilted bells in the red blocks and doves in the cream coloured blocks and here are some close ups.
I also got a better shot of the trapunto cardinals. Still the dimensional effect is hard to capture with my camera.
Well now to go and work on the second Christmas quilt which unfortunately won't be finished in time for Christmas so it will be shipped between Christmas and New Years but I'm sure my friends will love it despite it being late.
If I don't get a chance to write another entry before Christmas may everyone have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
