    I made it for my porch swing

    I love it, made for my porch swing, but too darn cute to leave out. Ever have a quilt that while your making it your thinking it is not so great and it turns out to be a favorite? The backing was just some old material that I had intended to donate to goodwill or something. Instead it is absolutely beautiful onthe back..I laundered it and it crinkled up so darling.

    Super cute quilt! So bright & cheery. Yes, I, too, have had things that I hated while I was working on them & then end up falling in love with them. And, unfortunately, visa versa... ick! Thanks for sharing this little gem with us!

    Your quilt is so pretty, and the porch, swing, quilt scene is so very inviting! I am glad you think the quilt is to pretty to leave out, because that was my thinking as well!

    So beautiful. I know what you mean. I had recently made a baby quilt for a friend. She wanted geeens, reds, and oranges. I was amazed at how it turned out.....did not want to give it to her!!!!!

    I love it. It may go missing if I lived where you live. Take care of it and take it inside when you are not using it. Great job.

    Your quilt is great. Gives me an idea for my swing as it is not always so comfortable, that would really help. thanks.
