Seriously? Yes, this is the back of a quilt. The quilter used different colors of bobbin thread to be sure that a fabulous design was created on the back of the quilt as well as on the front. Incredible, isn't it?
Last week I went on a little quilting retreat with friends, and stayed in a condominium in Palm Desert, where it was 78 degrees the first few days we were there. That good luck changed on us though, and we had lots of rain the end of the week. It never rains in the desert, except when we were there. We didn't care though, and even though none of had umbrellas or appropriate outerwear, we had a blast.
We got plenty of sewing done, and I will show you what I accomplished in later posts this week. Our trip culminated with a drive up "The 10" to the Road to California Quilt Show in Ontario, where we saw some pretty amazing quilts. I have to say that my taste runs more towards the traditional style, so those tended to be my favorites. The work that goes into these pieces is truly mind boggling.
I am not sure why I was so taken with the backs of quilts, but here is a photo of another one that was pretty amazing:
I came home to a freezing cold house, as our thermostat went belly up last week. Supposedly it is an easy fix, and will be taken care of right away. Last night I burrowed under a heavy down comforter, which normally would be way too hot for me. I was snug as a bug. Unfortunately I have other things to do which are going to get in the way of me staying under the covers all day. What a pity.
