Tuesday

This little quilt top is finished!
3 1/2" squares...all lined up...
ready to be a sandwich!!!
+quilt top
+batting
+backing

I want to scallop the edges and
hand quilt this one.
Wondering what color thread I'll use.
Lime green?
White?
Hmmm......
I'm going to look at what I have in my stash!
I kind of like that perle cotton using a bigger stitch.
This is my next
TAKE ALONG project!
You know...
take along to the doctor...
take along to the meeting....
take along to the park.....
Hopefully no more
TAKE along to the EMERGENcy Room!!!!!

This quilt's special.
It's not every day I get to make a quilt
for the FIRST grandchild!!!

  6. So cute! Oh, I would go with the lime green in the purple and black and a white or black in the green. Oh a scalloped border with a crochette picotte edge - I know, shut up Sharon.
