This was a very large quilt and the back is pieced with two large pieces of green fabric. The quilting is stich in the ditch because I just couldn't stomach possibly running this quilt with my stippling. The whole time I was making this I thought about who I would give it to. But now I can't part with it. It will be added to our collection of couch quilts that we use when we watch t.v. I would take it to a picnic but I am afraid it would get dirty.
