Although I haven't been blogging, I have been quilting. In bits and pieces over the past two weeks I have been piecing my bed quilt top. I finally finished it yesterday. See?
I am slightly underwhelmed at this point. I like the way it turned out, on the whole, but right now I just can't see the beauty in it. I think I need to step back from it awhile until I fall in love with it again. So... I'm going to fold it up and tuck it away till later this summer. I do think I made it big enough though, don't you?
It hits the floor on all three sides... !!
Now it's on the Quilt of Valor. (I'm having trouble linking tonight so will try and put it in tomorrow.) I'm starting with a panel by Laurel Burch from her Mystical Horses line:
I'll put a border around it using these colors and fabrics:
Right now I'm thinking several layers of color, possibly with some striping... we'll see what appears!
