Double meandering

I didn't know "meander" means a bend in a sinuous watercourse or river. This quilting pattern must be named from it.

One quilt top for a boy, designed and pieced by Judith Newman for her loverly family, I wanted to quilt it in simple pattern since it's for a boy (a man?). I thought that just a meandering is too simple, so I did it double with one brown variegated thread and one green variegated thread. I think it went well.

If the distance of each stitch was more apart, it might look like a double helix (! DNA !) which could give a different impression. Interesting, isn't it :)
