Next Door Neighbor

My "Next Door Neighbor" quilt is complete, binding and all. It was on my UFO list - one of my older projects.
Here is a close-up where you can see the quilting a little also. Paisley Flower is the quilting design, but it blends in mostly with this quilt.
And, always, the back. This backing reminds me of the first time I did "backart". I made a quilt for my sister (when I hand-quilted even) and we had taken a class from Roberta Horton at Houston International Festival. She had showed us pieced-backs and so I tried it. Think I put three fabrics, similar to this. I was really stepping out of the box then in the late 80s. I really like interesting backs of quilts, even if it's just pieced as opposed to using something you don't like. Just adds something special to the quilt!

Love all of the interplay between colors and blocks. It makes for some wonderful illusions that are simply wonderfully fun!
