You know what's really fun?
a merry go round at the lake.
Seriously, that's awesome. Also fun...
photographing a Clashy Bright quilt on a merry go round at the lake.
Hmm.... what about photographing a Clashy Bright quilt on a merry go round at the lake while spinning?
Nah, I didn't try that.
I wonder what you see when you look at this quilt? I guess it's kind of like a snowball block, but in my imagination those white diamonds are tiny flashing jewels. I used my smallest white or almost-white triangle scraps (mostly from making mitered binding) to create wonky diamonds. I'm really pleased with how the diamonds look placed just in the center of the quilt, not at the edges. Details, details.
Mmm... I like this one so much with its clashy, happy colors and flash of black and brave new world quilting. This one's going to have to find a special home. Turns out there are babies on the way with lots of my friends. Girl anyone?
Hey, guess what, I finally tried minky again! Many moons ago I made a minky rag quilt and swore off the minky for good. It was such a snowy mess to work with! But still I kept the fabric leftovers in my cabinet all this time.... You know how that goes. So this time I wanted a quilt back that would contrast with all that color and the white dimple dot was just wide enough. Taking my own "trying" advice, I gave it another go.
And I love it. Love it. LOVE IT. Must-Buy-More-for-Baby-Quilt-Backing kind of love it. If you haven't touched this stuff it is so, so, soooo soft. Everyone has to pet it. And it comes in colors. Swoon. I think I had blocked all that out because it was such a mess to work with, but that was because I was fringing it for a rag quilt. Yeah, don't do that. As a backing - no mess and heavenly!
Ahem, to move on. I bound the clashy bright goodness in light pink Lizzy House jewels, which make a darn good binding if I do say so myself, and called it a day.
A Happy Day. Same to you!
