The pattern is Picture This from the Happy Hour book by Atkinson Designs. I have seen so many variations of this pattern, and I just love them all. (I've linked to some of those quilts in this blog post). You can see where I messed up on the placement of the squares. There are 3 that are facing the same way in the middle of the quilt, and they shouldn't be.
I didn't do a very good job on the quilting either, as you can see here.
I was trying to channel Mrs. Schmenkman and her quilting abilities - but she wasn't coming through very clearly - so I gave up. *sigh* I just finished it up by stippling it.
And the back. Yes, the back.
No, it doesn't go all that well with the front. But I had the fabric and decided to use it. My girls gave me a hard time about using that backing fabric.
But the binding - ah, the binding. Even though I don't have a good picture of it, the pieced binding is just wonderful.
Why did I choose this quilt? I'm choosing it because I sleep under it every night. Now, keep in mind, even though I do share a bed with my husband, only I sleep under this quilt - because it's not big enough to fit over our whole king sized bed. And at night when I'm laying in bed watching tv I tend to look at the quilt once in awhile, and when I do, I just love it every single time. I think it's the colors. They are so girly and so soothing. All I know is that even with all of its faults, this is my favorite quilt (right now).
