    My 3rd quilt for my daughters couch

    Thought I,d post my 3rd quilt for my daughter.
    I seem to be stuck in the earth tones.
    And have told my self I,ll go with some bright colours .
    But now I start another quilt and guess what it,s earth tones again .
    My wife just says i,m one with the earth lol
    But I have to say i,m liking that it is going together nicer.
    Thanks to every one on here that has helped me with my endless questions .

    Have a good day every one.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    It is very nice and shows the bond between a father and his daughter. It evokes all kinds of feelings of comfort, home, and being loved!

    I really like this. I find myself doing the same thing with colors - I'll go through a period of blues or greens, etc. in my quilts.

    I like that a lot. Gives me an idea for some fabric I have!

    I am sure they will adore this quilt. We all get stuck in our color preference. Mine is Turquoise and Purple.

    Hi TFC, you have done a great job. You will find that each quilt will be better than the one before it. The same will go for putting them together, it gets easier and easier. As far as being "One with the earth", this is your comfort zone. And we all love our comfort zones.
