    Annie's Love Knot Quilt

    My DD was married 20 years last June so I asked her what colors would she like for her quilt and she said yellow and blue. Then right before I went to buy the fabric, she said she was getting a king size bed soon. Well, the pattern I had picked out I didn't want to make in king size and since I love Eleanor Burns, I found her Love Knot pattern. It turned out nice and everyone loves it, but it's just not what I like. Another quilting friend liked it so much she actually bought most of the fabric and made one just like it. I bought everything at Joann's and while I love the pattern and I love the fabric, the quilt is just ho-hum to me. I think I am a true Scrappy girl at heart. Decided after this one that I will just use what is in my stash from now. And I have a huge stash !!! This is a huge quilt but I do recommend this pattern as it went together really quick. Another friend had made it in various taupes and browns and I like it better. I got some men working in the yard to hold it up for me, so no pretty draping for this one.

    your quilt is lovely and I think would translate wonderfully with light and dark scraps.

    That is a very pretty quilt, but I know what you mean about liking scrappy.

    I think you did a beautiful job and the color combination is nice. I am going to add that pattern to my 'to do list'! I am working on a blue quilt that is about the same shade of blues and am finding I don't like it and will struggle to finish it. I am begning to think I don't like blue quilts unless they are more denim/denim colored.

    I have this pattern on my "to-do" list and I appreciate being able to see how different colors play with each other. Good job!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Beautiful quilt.
    I made a Lover's Knot like it for our oldest Granddaughter's friend. The fabric was gold, not yellow.

    Just in case your DD doesn't care for this please feel free to send it to ME I love it. Love the colors, the pattern and the combination. I think they will absolutely flip for this. Really nice!

    Your quilt is so pretty but I have to say the shirtless belly made me giggle... and I mean that giggle turned into a rather loud BWAH-HA-HA! Had to reel it back in...

    Definitely not 'HOHUM'. Different strokes for different folks.
