At one point early in the quilting, I thought to myself, "Oh, no, she has a piece in upside down". After a couple more instances, I realized she did it on purpose to get a lighter version. After all, you pay for both sides of the fabric, right?
Before I started, I asked her if she thought Clay would use it or hang it. She said use it. So instead of quilting the entire thing in gold thread, I used white for the light sections, and navy for the dark sections. It has been a year since I quilted it. Carol recently said he takes it everywhere and brags about it. I told her I could have saved myself a lot of trouble connecting designs and changing threads if I'd known he was just going to "drag and brag" LOL! I know she is thrilled that he loves her quilt and I'm thrilled she loves the quilting.
