The front not so much:
This was a bear to rip out. Pebbles that are tiny and double stitched means very tiny tiny stitches sitting on top of each other.
I loved the design and texture:
I worked on it while watching movies or relaxing (???) on the couch over the past few months. Many times I thought about trimming the last row of piecing and make the quilt smaller. I am glad I persevered, because I think I would always regret not finishing.
When asked how I plan to quilt it, my response has been “stitch in the ditch.” Now that this is all ripped out, I am rethinking that response. If I do decide to do something other than stitch in the ditch I will need a different colored thread or two:
