#1 Twin Quilt
OK, top is DONE - and holy cow, it's BRIGHT! The blue inner border actually toned it down a bit. Maybe using a colored variegated quilting thread will tone down the overall quilt, but I'm not sure the quilt is asking for that. ???? Suggestions would be appreciated. What about using a creamy thread in an all-over meandering pattern? Somehow I'm wanting to blend the colors to soften the affect, just a little. But the animals are simply darling, and I'm guessing a baby will love it.
The size is about 48 x 68, and since the babies are now almost 9 months old, I thought the quilt should be a larger than baby size. And since I dislike pink so much, I just couldn't make it pink! Now, on to Quilt #2.
Now, I'm away from blogging for a while to attend to family business out of state. And my Janome Platinum, and associated stuff, is coming with me. I'll have a LOT to catch up on upon my return. And maybe it will be cooler! Expected to be 105 here Monday.
Happy quilting, everyone!
