Oh Bed, Forgive me! Why did I Ever Leave You?
January's project is done. I do have to add a border and quilt it but the top part of the quilt is done.
Due to the cost of quilting, I typically wait until I have two quilt tops done to make the final quilt that is reversible.
While I've always liked the Grandmother's Flower Garden pattern, what I do not like about them is the "busyness" of the final set. There is no place for your eye to rest. So I decided to add blocks of color that are found in the blocks between the blocks. Added bonus: it makes this quilt top that much faster to put together!
These are not the typical colors I use but I love that they have such a "freshness" about them. Especially in January when everything looks so grey and dreary outside.
What makes this quilt so nice and what I love about it is that you can use small bits of fabric to put together the blocks and they have such a dramatic effect. It's the little things you know....
Guess what? Project two is already in the works. More coming later....
