River Rock quilt

Phew! A couple of days ago I finished up this large quilt.
The quiltmaker wanted me to quilt rocks and river on it and
wanted heavy quilting on it.

At first I started out with the darker thread
but was alarmed when it
showed up so vividly on the lighter fabric.
Using the darker thread with heavy quilting
would have completely changed the color of the quilt.
I ended up picking out this quilting (no small feat!) and using the softer color thread on the entire quilt.

This is a picture of the back of the quilt.
The quiltmaker used up any squares that did
not make it on the front of the quilt.
Now she will have 2 quilts in one!
These are pictures of the back of the quilt where you can
see the quilting lines better on the solid colored fabric.
There is ALOT of close quilting in this quilt.
Sure hope the quiltmaker likes it!
