On the back, I did a solid red backing, but wanted to do something special. I started out adding scraps of strips from the blocks on the front, and then my husband had the idea of making an entire mini quilt on the back! It was so cute and fun to make. Then I added an embroidered patch. Then I quilted (about 120) semi-straight lines with red thread for added color.
This quilt has a whirlygig pattern made from the combination of cool and warm colored blocks. The design is from the book Fresh Quilting by Malka Dubrawsky - http://stitchindye.blogspot.com. There are many photos in this post, because I'm very proud of it!
He has it at college now, and I'm glad something handmade by me is with him!
