Never fear, I actually do have quilty things to show you this time.
My mom attended a rummage sale and bought three pieces of fabric for me!
Love, you mom!
One is 3 yards of cheater fabric good for backing or just using to make a small quilt and practice some quilting on it.
One is 5 yards of a floral knit fabric. Not sure what to do with this. Ideas??
And last but not least two yards of this LARGE floral cotton print. I love this! These flowers are huge!
I'm still not very good at estimating how long it will take me to do something. I was hoping to get Ashley's quilt quilted this month but I don't know if I'll make it. So for the moment, I am happy to announce I've at least got the top done! Here it is:
This quilt will measure 60 x 68. I am tempted to add on a border using the dark navy with coral flowers. If I had this to do over again, I would use darker colors in place of the fabrics that are kind of low volume. Ashley does like it the way it is, but I think the high contrast of white and darker values together is more striking.
One of my favorite parts of reading your comments is hearing your ideas on how you would do something. Sometimes you have ideas I would never have thought about. So please, feel free to share you thoughts with me on these two questions:
How would you quilt Ashley's quilt?
What would you do with that 5 yards of knit fabric?
I'd love to hear from you!
