This is the back where all is visible. And here's a close-up view of the stitching, folded and fused to the backing.
Now that this piece is going to its new owner, I asked the recipient if she would prefer to leave the quilting on the back visible, or would she like the back covered with fabric, fused into place, invisible from the front. Keep in mind that this piece is entirely fused already.
Which would you prefer?
When it comes to art quilts, the old rules are out the window and I especially like moving the quilt from function to art and finishing it as neatly as possible.
