So I kicked it outside to play. Of course, it brought out a video game book to read.
But the quilt got bored reading it and so begrudinly let me do a photo shoot with it.
Front close up. I did a double echo around all the pieces and FMQ squares and rectangles on the black part outside border. I left the grey box and small border pieces unquilted.
Back. I really like how the quilting came through. I was a little worried that it would be a poor match for the back or wouldn't be square. But it matched well and is square. I worked really hard to get everything lined up, so I feel pretty proud of myself for that. (The yellow pieces don't look great because of the wind. It is an "organic" echo, but looks better than the picture portrays.)
(Here's a closeup of the back.)
Then the quilt wanted to go back inside, but I said it needed to spend a little more time outside. It tried to climb a tree, but it turns out that quilts aren't very good at climbing.
It wanted to go swimming, but I said no because it didn't have a swimsuit. It turned its back on me.
I finally relented and let it go back inside, where the first thing it did was go back to the video games.
Thanks to Melissa at Happy Quilting for hosting this QAL! It was my first one and I loved it.
