This picture was taken before washing. I wanted to see if the quilting designs show up better before or after washing and drying the finished quilt.
Perhaps the crinkling from the washing process obscures some of the quilting design by adding more texture? Anyway, I quilted spirals on the left side, loops on the box frames, a large meander in the box's print, and then echoed leaves on the right side.
The back is a little softer in color than the front.
I found this print on sale when I was starting to plan this quilt. Had to include it, because the father is a reporter for a small local newspaper.
