    Big Blue

    A couple of months ago my husband was looking at some of my quilting magazines and brought me a picture of a quilt and said "I'd sure like this beautiful blue quilt on my bed!". I looked at the picture and the fabric was pink! If you hadn't guessed, he's color blind! So, I worked for a whole month getting jsut the right blues. He did the quilting on our longarm and I finished up the binding Friday. It's the first time I've used wool. It sure does show the quilting and he claims it's warmer! He wanted it wider than the pattern, so I just added fabric to the sides for the drop. I am still not sure I like this one, but he's happy with it. As with most of my stuff, I hate it when its done, the look at it a month later and love it!

    Great quilt and I understand what you say about not liking recently completed projects. Funny how that happens.
