All quilted up, thank goodness!

     I finished quilting and adding facings to Between a Rock and a Hard Place, the small quilt I started at the Hudson Valley workshop in March. I was assigned to use two colors I did not like. Still don't. I forced myself to complete the sewing and then I quilted it in straight lines with Black Isacord. I had some equally ugly batik that I used for the back. It fits with this. Now I just have to find someone who loves these colors and size so I can move out this piece. It was a learning exercise. And I finished it.

I like the neutral colors with the great pop of color....

I do not love these colours and the fabric of the back, but I think it a beautiful quilt and design. I am sure someone will be very happy with this quilt!

Great job on "Between a Rock and a Hard Place" - something you found challenging! I think the quilting stitches really help the back fabric - makes the fishes look like they're swimming. And I've ALWAYS liked the earthy colors on the front. Even though you don't like it, many others do.
