Snapshots


Over the long weekend I finished up this lap quilt, a birthday gift for my dearest friend. Now I just have to find the time to quilt it! Still not sure what pattern or thread I'm going to use...hmm. I was a bit scared of all the bright fabrics while putting together the blocks, but now that it's all put together and I think the chocolate border really finishes it off...I LOVE IT! Not to mention every color in this quilt is an accent color in her front room...it couldn't be more perfect!

Okay so now, if you've read my previous posts...this obviously means that I slipped up and made another quilt before I finished the last one. I know, I know! I'm still working on the applique border, so it hasn't really been put away so to speak and I couldn't help it...these bright colors were calling me, and besides it's for a birthday, that's got to count for something!!! :0)
