Comet - progress I

I have been working hard on quilting the 'Siblings Together' quilts and will post an update on that next week but also managed to piece the quilt top for the 'Comet' quilt in between.

So I thought I share with you an update on the progress. Some of you may have already seen this at the FQ retreat last weekend. I am so utterly pleased with how it turned out and have shown it already to Michael from Oakshotts and I think he was rather impressed too at how his fabulous reds shine in the middle of the luxurious black.






Now I am debating with myself about what to do for the back. Originally I thought I use a patterned one piece back but I am changing my mind slowly to a pieced back using one of the alternative designs I sketched with EQ 7 for this quilt. That would make it completely reversible and rather like this idea.


I actually am thinking to go for this design. What do you think ?




Or maybe this instead ?



Oh I don't know..... well I am going to Germany tonight for few days to visit my sister and celebrate my nephew's fourth birthday and maybe I get a brainwave there.

Have a good weekend !

  2. It looks fantastic, I like the first design. Have a fantastic trip and get some of those big hugs in. Thanks for the pink pincushion you gave me at retreat, even my 7yr old thought it should go to the charity shop!

  5. Love it! I'd go with the first design for the back ;-) but you could probably have guessed I'd say that. Really is a lush quilt though. :-)

  6. Looking great, I like the first option; the scattered red. It's like a before and after shot of the comet exploding.

  11. Das erste Motiv ist eindeutig besser! Das zweite erinnert in der Farbverteilung zu sehr an die Vorderseite. Mit dem ersten h├Ąttest du eine "echte" Alternative.

  15. So gorgeous! Both options are amazing, although I think I gasped out loud when I saw the second one!
    Happy Birthday to your nephew!
