    Made up this "nap" quilt top for my lovely Daughter-in-law, Samantha.

    Gotta finish quilting the Airplane quilt before I get to this one, though.

    Good news is, mitered borders don't scare me anymore!

    I "sort of" designed it myself. Picked the fabrics from my LQS, then realized that the online sellers had a much better selection of colors, so I ordered more. I have long been admiring some of the color treatments that the quilters on this board do, and wanted to try something like it myself.

    All these fabrics are the "Fuchsia" or "Fuchsia II" line from Maywood Studios. I found several different colors on ebay.

    Then I made up a bunch of HSTs and 4squares and played around with them on the design board, while I still had it up to play around on. This is just what I thought looked best. The ones I have left over I'm going to put together into little quilts for Sam's 2 little girls, aged 2 and 4.

    This is so stiking! The dark green- I think it's dark green- it is on my screen- stands out so well! And then the rest just draw your eye out to the pretty border. This is great. You did a good job with your design and colors.

    I also like the smaller blankets for the daghters. What a good idea.

    You did a wonderful job of playing around. It's very pretty.

    I think I'm going to try some "curvy" stuff. Other than that I don't have a plan. :shock:

    Actually, after that tedious Airplane quilt, this one was a piece of cake. I put this top together in just a matter of days, instead of weeks. And the blocks are all big, 8" square finished. I did that so I could make the little girl's quilts on a smaller scale and still be able to piece them, and make them look sort of like their mom's quilt.

    Thanks for the compliments. Yes, it is green, a very dark swirled green. The center background color and the outside color on the border is purple, but it doesn't really look purple on my computer.

    Of course, I took the bad pics with my cell phone, so it is amazing that you can see any of it!

    What a beautiful quilt. I especially love the flower fabric. Where did you find that, what is it called?

    "Fuchsia" or "Fuchsia II" line from Maywood Studios. I found several different colors on ebay. Some of the online QS have it also, you can do a google search for "Fuchsia quilt fabric" and quite a few come up.
