Suddenly the gears in my head started turning and I realized that the quilting pattern I was designing for the front of the quilt would totally ruin the back of the quilt.
And here I was, trying to be diligent in finishing projects on my list and I had an accidental extra quilt in my WIP's. As I added some more strips to the quilt, I pondered. I designed that "backing" for Henry. The red, yellow and orange make up a "fish" in the center. The blues are water (of course) mixed with bubbles (possibly Henry's second love after water). If I turned it into a twin sized quilt, the scale of the center block would be too small. So I held it up on the wall in his room and it is just right as a modern splash of color on his wall.
So, there you have it. Another day or two of concentrated quilting with the walking foot and it'll be ready for a binding.
Though, you'll note that I said "concentrated" quilting. I'm now distracted by hexies again....
