The front           ( which you can read more about here )

The back:

The back was supposed to be just some scraps sewn together, but I got carried away with this modified bento-box pattern I found on-line.  I had plenty in my stash so I just kept going with it.  Now I kind of like the back better than the front.... It seems much more calm and relaxing for a bedroom than the front.

I stitched in the ditch around the main blocks, but all the other quilting is done by hand.  It took 5 months, all worth it :)

Finishing up at 78 x 78 before washing


  1. I love the combination of colour and b & w on the starry side - how pretty! Congrats on a happy finish. :)
    Thanks for visiting my blog earlier, Karen. I only mention it because you come up as a "no reply" blogger so I can't respond by email, and I wanted you to know that I appreciate your kind words. Thanks again!

    1. Thanks Carole. I'll look into my "no reply" status.

    2. Thanks Carole. I'll look into my "no reply" status.

  2. Both sides ARE wonderful. It's hard to pick a favorite, but atleast YOU don't have to.

    I love the look of the scrappy coloring inside all that black and white of the first side.

    And I recently got carried away on the piecing of a back, too. But I just love it when quilts have multi-interest. For instance, the close-up and the far-off views of your big sashing fabric on the first side are amazingly different. I had to keep going back and forth to make myself believe that it was the same fabric.
