Sunday Design Wall

Stayed up quilting maybe a little later than I should have last night (with the company of a glass of a good wine) but that enabled me to get the top completed today. (This is the baby quilt my daughter asked me to make.) Now at 4 PM, I'm being assaulted with one jaw-cracking yawn after another.

The solid gold fabric looks more orange-y in the photo than it really is. Had to take the picture on the design wall rather than out in our greenhouse where I seem to be able to get truer color representation. (Couldn't talk the dog into holding up the quilt top out there . . . and my main holder-upper [husband] was involved elsewhere.)

I had originally picked out a gorgeous blue for the center square of each 9-patch and the outer border setting triangles, but my daughter thought it would make the quilt look too specifically little boy-ish, so we switched to the gold keeping it more neutral in color.

But I keep thinking about that blue . . . so pretty . . . and I have quite a few squares left over that I cut for the 9-patches. I may have to make another one in a little different layout and use that blue fabric.

Okay, I'm going to try to get it backed and sandwiched tomorrow and then on with the quilting.

Hi, Diane - I'm so glad you commented . . . because now I've found your blog! Hope to find time later to check things out more thoroughly.

Hey, Beth - I'd like the orange/mustard/gold a lot, lot more if I didn't have that blue color stuck in my head. Funny how we zero in on something and then can't think of anything else!
