Well spring and summer have come and (almost) gone. After finally getting my daughter married off and things settling down at work I headed back to my sewing room! The result was completing the quilt top for Retro Springtime. Here it is (click on it to enlarge):
Pardon the poor lighting. The colors are a bit more vibrant! As you can see I finished it off by outlining the body in the 2.5″ white solid strips, then alternated yellow floral and red floral 2.5″ strips as the border. Had I not totally stopped working on this it would have been something that could be finished rather quickly. Instead, it sadly sat on my design wall while I ignored it for other things. Well, the other “things” I’m quite happy got successfully completed:
This quilt has always been intended for daughter # 2 (the matron of honor) who was gifted with a small lap quilt last Christmas and has been asking for a bigger one. I’ll be visiting her in October so I’ll finish this up over the next week or so and finally, personally deliver it!
I have an idea that’s brewing for the newlyweds as well and will post that soon.
Hope everyone has had a great spring and summer!
