Its nice to have a BLUE Monday. Visit Sally at SmilingSally who is our gracious BLUE Monday host for more BLUE participants. Enjoy.
In January I became a great aunt to Dylan, my nephew's little bundle of joy. I really wanted to make her something, something like a quilt. I'm not really a quilter and I've had no desire to shop and coordinate fabrics for a quilt.
Sunday morning I decided to sort through fabric I had already. Surely I could put together a quilt with the different bits I had....a scrappy quilt. I knew her room had oranges in it. These fabrics do have orange in them as well as reds and a bit of pink (that looks purple in this pic).
Once I knew what fabric I had to play with I calculated the quilt on paper. Then I started cutting. As I began laying them out I couldn't imagine this as a pretty quilt for a little girl. You can see the BLUE in the striped fabric. The blue is not as bold looking and blends into the colours in real life.
I added some pretty lace trim (another picture of BLUE stripes) ....and after working the Sunday afternoon....
Tonight I'll buy some fabric for the back and finish quilting. I'll add a narrow border around it, sign my name on the back. It'll be ready to bring to my sister-in-law next Saturday when we visit. I was so pleased with the result. It made Sunday very special.
I hope yours was special too....Judi xoxo
