Simply Quilted

Saturday, July 4, 2009

Here's my nearly finished product for Old Red Barn Co.'s Sew-Along. 
I think it reflects all things summer~crisp color, easy lines, uncomplicated.
Bev, from B&B did the beautiful machine quilting~I love the little loopy hearts!
Looking at it makes me want to lay it out on the lawn and have a picnic.
Since I've been on this orange kick lately and since there's an orange fabric or two in the top I thought this orange polka dot to be perfect for the back. You should have heard my girls go crazy once they saw the back. They liked the top, but when I flipped it to show them the back they went wild~then it was love! It still needs binding, something solid to frame all the color~maybe dark aqua. . .
Hey, what about this~speaking of summer and quilts. . . it should be fun, too!

Happy 4th of July~enjoy your weekend!
