    Red face finished another quilt top in January

    i am very happy with this quilt- it is so bright- it just (SINGS) to me
    i Love making French Braid Quilts- they are enjoyable to me- and this one did not take me long- i still have to quilt and bind it of course-but the top is finished
    it all started with trying to figure out a 'hot pink & black quilt' for my neice-
    i was trying to use my stash only- (which i did)
    i loved working on it- and was so proud of it when i got it done- i took it to show it off a bit and was informed by a number of people i
    REALLY MISSED THE MARK! as far as a pink quilt goes- it's way too orange---
    so---
    neice won't be getting this one- i will try again- but i still love this one- even if it is more orange than pink
    it was nice to make a whole quilt without having to 'shop'
    i finally used some fabrics i've had on the shelves for 2 or 3 years that i just couldn't seem to figure out what to do with-
    i am happy i waited for this quilt to use them.
    ok- i'll stop patting myself on the back & show you the picture...

    Beautiful! You need to keep this one for you! (Or send it to me if you feel guilty about keeping it...)
    If you feel like you're special...it's 'cause you are!

    thanks everyone- i probably won't keep it- it sings to me- i love it- but i have a young granddaughter who LOVES orange---and she will be turning 12 next year- time for replacing the (child like princess quilt) with something a little more grown up- i'm thinking i might actually do a little embellishing on it--not that it necessarily needs it- but i may add something to it and finish it up for a really early done gift---she would LOVE IT too...she is a child after my own heart
    and her older sister recieved (Ashley's Ocean) bargello quilt for her 12th birthday---so anyhow-
    i'm so glad to read that it's not just me---that others like it too- last weekend had me feeling kind of down about it---thanks for boosting me back up

    I just love that quilt ... it sings to me too! And I'm sure you're 12 yr old GD will love it as much as you do...
    Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is listening. Love like you've never been hurt.

    That is spectacular! The colors all play together perfectly I can't believe you pulled this out of your stash. Wow. So much energy and movement, you just want to keep looking at it. Please post it again after it's quilted!
