"The Big Blue Zipper & The Road to No Where"

It seems like forever since I finished piecing this quilt.  In fact, I couldn't even remember what quilting design I told the quilters to use.....(it's the old age thing, I'm thinking).  I like it though, so that's all I care about.  Ever since I did "Which is Which" I wanted to do a quilt that wasn't cut off and showed all the blocks in full.  Then too, I wasn't too sure what to put on the back so when I got it done....it looked like a road to me, so I named both the front and the back.  I must say, that it's the first time I've ever named both and I really do like the names together.  For some reason sometimes I crack myself up!  Oh well....time to reveal.  (Oh, and I must tell you that this is not the "something" that I am excited to show you.  That will still have to wait.......sorry!!)

Really cool looking, Carol! I love the quilting design you picked for them to do. It really shows up well & the juxtaposition of the linear lines against the curves of the ovals is quite interesting to the eye.
LOVE the names of both sides! LOL

I love this quilt. I am going to be making one for my brother's graduation present. Something like this would be perfect.
