It's a very simple design but I kind of burnt myself out on quilts as I've done about 20 in the last 4yrs.

Sell that shit. My wife and daughter are big time into crochet and we are looking to sell their art online. Handmade ought to get 2-3x Walmart we figure.

The before pic is of the quilt top without the quilting stitching (it's smooth) to bind the top, back and filler together. If you look at the after pic you can see a squiggly line of thread binding them together (that the quilting) and it looks puffed or bunched up a bit. The quilting thread pattern is called Popcorn.

Because of the flash in the camera it's quite a bit brighter than it really looks. The color are really a dark jewel tones.
