What was I thinking???

This quilt definately comes under the heading 'What was I thinking?'
I did so many things wrong.
The biggest thing was using a floral backing.
I knew better when I started that my stitching wouldn't show up but it was the best match I had on hand at the time. So I should have just done an all over design - mistake #2.
I definately shouldn't have quilted in so much detail.
If it's not going to show then why do it.
I did get in alot of practice. 
This is called 'Strips and Salsa" and was real quick and easy to put together.
There are alot of choices to make when deciding how to quilt a quilt.
I knew I was going overboard but I did it anyway.

Why quilt in so much detail? Because it looks so totally awesome!! You can see all that beautiful quilting on the front and that's where it really matters. I LOVE it!
