Reversible quilts

Here's another reversible done with Crossroads to Jericho blocks swapped by an online group many years ago. They sat in a pile in my room all that time until I decided to do this. I really like the effect. Linda, I do it all by machine. No handwork at all unless you finish the binding by hand, but why? when it's so much faster with my trusty Bernina!



These pictures are quilts I made using the reversible quilt method. The pinwheel side is the "back" I'll post pics of other quilts I've done using this method as soon as I find where I put them.

How different both sides of the quilt look--split personalities, LOL. Do you finish the seaming by hand or by machine---that part might do me in, knowing how I don't like doing the binding part of a quilt.

Love the idea of your reversible quilts. I haven't tried it, but sure looks interesting.

neat, I am doing one similar to your pinwheels version. (I have a print that is basically orange, yellow, blue & green - one side will have the warm strips while the other has the cool strips - I just need to cut my batting....)

Love the top quilt too - that is on my want to do list - I just like the graphic like of it. both the "arrows" and the up & down look of the 9-patches.

Veronica, I guess you are just better friends with you machine than I am. I love my Viking but when it comes right down to it, I could probably get by this just forward, backwards and a zigzag for too skimpy seam allowances.

I really like the mix of colors in your Crossroads to Jericho top!
