Sunglasses on?



As my daughter put it, "Wow, the whole room got brighter!" Is that good or bad? Maybe our brown Kansas winter is getting to me.


When I started this quilt, I never envisioned that it would be quite this bright or colorful. Seems a little brighter in the photo than in real life but not by much. When its quilted and bound, I think I'll hang it in an area of our home that needs a little brightening up!


Still have much work to do on it but the borders are on. Quilting will have to wait as I have another project promised to someone which will have to come first.


By the way, my next project (already working on it) is in pastel colors (so far).

  3. This is just marvelous! It's my kind of quilt. I can't believe how much work you put into making all those clamshells. The border you selected sets them off wonderfully. It's awesome!

  9. Wow, the top looks fantastic. I love the bright colours. You did a wonderful job! And you beat me. My top is still an UFO due to circumstances last year but I intend to finish it this year.
