    This question was put to me by DH as I was cleaning up from making my Purple Fan quilt a couple of weeks ago. So we went shopping and he picked out fabric for a "TV watching Quilt"
    "It has to be long enough to tuck under my feet!" So not it's done and I can move on. It's a combination snowball and 9 patch (very fast). The colors were not really inspiring to me, but it turned out OK. DH is thrilled! so I am too!

    I love it! I love when simple designs turn into beautiful quilts. The addition of the stripe fabric really makes it and sets a striking secondary pattern.

    Well done.

    Pretty! I like the way you've used the stripes in the design. And I even like the colors. Lately I've been kind of partial to orange.
