    Merry and Bright

    I just finished my last of my Christmas gift quilts. This one is for my boyfriend and I have to say it is one of my favorite quilts I've ever made. I just love the colors and the pattern. And I did test it out last night and it was super nice and cozy. The pattern is "Got the Blues" by Karla Schulz from Quilting World 2010.

    Very dramatic colors - lovely!
    'Tacky' does not necessarily refer to the quality of adhesiveness.

    Love your colors, so bright and cheerful. Your beau should feel very loved. I also saw the pattern on the front of one of the quilting magazines and decided to make a scrappy blue and white version for an elderly lady I know. I have yet to quilt it but it is up next on the frame. Thanks for giving me inspiration to get going on it.

    Very pretty!! What a nice variation for log cabin blocks.

    Just beautiful!! My husband would like that, because he is a blues and jazz professional trombone player.

    what an awesome quilt. Love the colors too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Absolutely beautiful quilt. I love the pattern and the colors/fabrics you chose. I hope it's big enough for two.

    It doesn't look very big in the pictures, but it is huge! It's about 96 x 108. I had to stand on my couch to get that picture lol
