The quilt is quilted!. It still needs binding. I encountered a small problem with the machine jamming at one point which put this small hole in the backing. There is too much work and fabric involved to just toss it. So then I had to think creatively.
I mended the hole and then used the 3 remaining blocks and put little pockets on the back side. They are real pockets which are open on one side. And the bottom photo is the real color of this quilt backing.
