Progress on DD's quilt

I'm so happy with the way this one is turning out. I love the fabric and the pattern. This is the first quilt I've made that I haven't second guessed myself on. I'm totally happy with it. I know she will be happy to just finally get a quilt, but I think she will be pleasantly surprised at the my color choices. This is a very simple pattern but the fabric just makes this quilt in my opinion. I learn something with each and every quilt I make and I think I finally learn my best lesson on this one, it doesn't have to be a difficult block to have punch, it's all about color. Did I tell you how much I love this quilt. That's unusual for me to be completed happy with what I'm making, but I'm more then happy, I'm thrilled!!
Now do you see something wrong in this next picture? It's not my oh so needed ironing board cover. Yes, you got it, I should have put right sides together but not me I do this way to often. You would think that as many times as I've had to frog blocks I've done this to I would take extra precautions. I do, I start out every time thinking now make sure you have them right sides together. Then next thing you know my mind has done went off into which colors should be next to each other or getting those edges lined up perfectly and now even realizing all that doesn't matter because I'll have to take it all apart in the end.


  1. I love it too. The colors make it!

    I just love the fabric in the second photo.

  2. Oh I love those colors and the pattern. Looks great!

  3. I love it too!! The colors really make it pop.
    I am also glad to see your HSTs, I do the same thing, positive I have them lined up right until I go to press and WHALAAA some are wrong.

  4. This quilt pattern is great and so is the fabric. Love that you used that cute card as your new header...looks wonderful!

  5. I love the colors and the pattern. Isn't it just a wonderful feeling when you know you got the right colors and fabric for the right pattern?

    As for the other, we are not going to discuss how many times I have done this. The only time it works out ok is when I am using true batiks!

  6. Donna, LOVE this quilt, if for some reason your DD doesn't LOVE it let me know!!! WOW WOW WOW - GREAT colors and GREAT JOB!!!

  7. WOW, that is a beautiful quilt. I love it. Your work is great!!
