Business in the Front, Party in the Back?

A few weeks ago, I shared the EQ design of a Hudson's Bay point blanket quilt that I wanted to make.


Originally, I was thinking about having the quilt be the same on the back as the front, but then I worried about trying to line up the stripes correctly for the tight horizontal straight line quilting I wanted to do. 

So then I played around with the idea of making the back like this on the vertical and changing up the order of the colours: 


I really want to do horizontal straight line quilting in cream and the stripe colours, but I'm now thinking that it would look funny on the vertical stripes if I did this back. Plus, I might get pops of the stripe colour thread through on the back.

Hmmm, any thoughts?

  3. oh, you rebel you....changing the order of the colours!! What would the fur traders think LOL
    I think it will look great, and the stitching going cross-ways on the back will add an extra layer of interest, in my opinion.

  4. I think it would look nice. You could also stitch the vertical lines, but only between the 2 sets of horizontal ones.

  6. Hmmmm, I love the idea of stripes running the other way on the back, but it does present a quilting problem. I'd probably ignore the stripes on the back and just quilt with the front side in mind. However you do it, I can't wait to get a look at it.....
