I quilted vertical lines down the whole thing, trying to vary them somewhat so they weren't completely straight yet not totally curved. Wonky took a little practice.
I like the back almost as much as the front. Isn't that the way it goes sometimes?

You can find the recipe in my post from three years ago here.

I'm on the left in the red sweater. I love my sister's shirt with the Nehru collar, the bark cloth curtains, our antique Knabe grand piano with a bazillion little fingerprints on it, and most of all, my brothers' sweet faces! Almost as if they can't wait for Santa and are trying to convince him they've been very good!
