CHRYSALIS QUILT BACK~FINISHED!

Remember this quilt?  Well, I added a couple borders and finally got the back pieced together.  I absolutely LOVE how the quilt top turned out.  


The back, on the other hand, isn't exactly how I invisioned it. 


I am just OK with the finished result but I decided the front makes up for it ;). Besides, I will be sending the whole thing off to Natalia of Piece N' Quilt to be custom quilted and I have NO doubt she will bring life to the back. (Seriously, have you seen her work? Besides running a great blog, she has also been featured in magazines and did all of the quilting in the Modern Basics book by Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side. How cool is that?!). Needless to say, I am super excited to have Natalia working on my quilt!

Hope everyone's week is going fabulously!

Linking up to these wonderful blogs

Finish it up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts

That top is awesome and I think the back is pretty neat, too. It will be interesting to see how it gets quilted but it looks pretty good already.

Beth, I love your quilt! In fact, I just bought some Chrysalis this week because I was inspired by this quilt top. :) I like the back, too, and the quilting will make it really shine!

I LOVE this, front and back. I have a quilt top made out of chrysalis as well, and I love that fabric line.
