The top of the quilt for Julie's daughter is done... There is something I really love about making a quilt without a plan. But then I guess that was my plan. The colors are joyful and I like the random mix of blocks dancing in the pink camo-like sashing.

|Detail (Isn't the brown on white fabric fabulous?)|
Later I was home with my stash and this fabulous print... and trying to figure it out. I added the bubbly black print... then used the colors of the bubbles to build the rest. I like the quilt... but I expect quilt love when I'm done. I don't know how to describe that, but these are the quilts I want to cuddle in on the couch and the prints just make me happy. Then for the first time ever I had enough of a miscommunication with my fabulous longarm quilter... that the wrong fabric ended up on back. I'm actually fine with what was used... because the top is just... meh.
Dark, fall/winter, dreary, cluttered looking. I did not nail this by any stretch of the imagination. I even saw it as I was making it but still didn't manage to avert this quilt pileup and now it is a finished meh quilt. Sigh.
|The wrong backing... but it kind of works.|
|Fine... but not what I had hoped.|
