Two Sides to Every Story

This is my entry into the Bloggers Quilt Festival. 


This quilt started out as Tumble 4Ya.   However, after putting it all together and seeing both sides.   I see that there are Two Sides to Every Story and every quilt.  Before I put it in to wash and dry, I took it out for a little photo shoot.
Here are my pictures just so you can see both sides of the story.


 Yes I did put up two shots of the Tumbler side in the tree.  I couldn't decide which picture I like best.

The tumblers were intended to be the front of this quilt.  Ha!  I am siding with the scrappy pieced side.  It is the front now. This a large lap quilt.

Gene, I'm with you - the scrappy side is my favorite. Both sides are great though.

I think I'm favoring the scrappy (back) side, also. You did a great job on the whole thing, though.

The tumblers are great, but they can't hold a candle to that scrappy side. It is GORGEOUS!!

Love it! Especially the lesser planned back side, not that it was any less work, LOL!

The front could be either side - they are both amazing!! Love the colors and the designs.

I love when both sides are equally great! It's tough to pick a favorite and fortunately, I don't have to :) Enjoy!

I think I like the tumbler side but then again the other side is great too.

This is such a fun quilt Gene- I love all the bright colors- I think that both sides are great. It is truly a reversible quilt- Use the side that suits how you are feeling at the time.
Thanks for sharing your pretty quilt.
