You can see the quilting a bit better in this picture, but it may be hard to see the different colored threads. I used 5 different colors and changed them every few inches. At first I thought it might make the quilt a little too busy, but it actually drew everything together and the texture of the quilt was just wonderful. I especially love the way the back looks with all the uneven lines.
I also embroidered a Bible reference on the quilt, hoping to encourage him in his current ministry overseas. My father-in-law is Korean, but for those who can't read this, the reference is Hebrews 12:1-3.
A lot of Koreans tell me that I have really "cute" handwriting when I write in Korean. I'm pretty sure that just means that I write like a 3-year-old, which is probably true. I'm okay with that.
I'm really proud of myself for producing this entire quilt in less than one week and though I had some mixed feelings about it as it was coming along, I love the final result. This is certainly the most "artsy" piece I've done so far, but it was fun to do something a little more experimental.
