The Autumn Blooms quilt back from A Bright Corner was the inspiration for the back and I included a strip of scraps that Ruby and I had sewn together. It's definitely a reversible quilt, we love both sides. The scrappy strip is project 19 of Scraps 101.
The quilting ended up being such a chore - I wanted the negative space to be more densely quilted than the blocks, which I outline quilted. I decided on diagonal lines spaced about an inch apart, but which didn't cross over the coloured squares in the outline quilted blocks. It took me aaaaaaages, stop start stop start. I was so pleased to have it finished.

Ruby loves it, so its a huge success. The Lorax is still my favourite.
