Front or Back?

Why did no one ever tell me how addictive the precision of quilting is? I have done so much sewing that it is hard to believe I've never tried a quilt! I have done a lot of piecing, but it is usually curved. The sameness of geometric patchwork is mesmerizing.

This is my baby quilt top. The nursery is projected to have a sock monkey theme... sort of. I wanted to choose a simple looking geometric pattern you can get lost looking at. Of course it is not as simple as it looks. Figures, right?
In eternity I will make millions of iterations of the same design to see how they look. The star/polka-dot print is slightly directional, and I started out making sure it all went the same way, but I gave up when I decided no one would notice.

Do you like the front or back better? I think I like the woven textural quality of the back, though you can't use a quilt that is backward...

Two days until the due date! The countdown is on.

It is beautiful! It reminds me off our silly bedroom wall in Texas which was not NEARLY as good looking as this... I like the front but that's me!
