It's beautiful.
blueheron61 answered:
Thank you so much. I've since added the borders, in gray and orange.
fit2knit asked:
I really love this look, You've inspired me to get back to my quilting very soon!!
blueheron61 answered:
Thanks! I've started the actual quilting process - really, my first attempt to do this. I'm using a large stipple design on the fencerail blocks, but still have to decide on what to do in the borders.
Quiltgal55 asked:
Absoluately love your choice of colours. You have a wonderful sense of it. To me choice of colour makes all the difference in a quilt. Your well on your way.
blueheron61 answered:
Thanks, Deb - but I can't claim credit for fabric choices. I simply bought a jelly roll pack and all the hard work was done for me! I know I couldn't have pulled all those luscious fabrics together on my own!
marshasneedles asked:
Love your quilt!
blueheron61 answered:
Thanks! It's still not quite done. I've finished most of the quilting - just a couple square feet left, and then the binding.
Athens11 asked:
Beautiful! Did you just start sewing the strips, or did you choose three that you thought went together, sew them and cut/make blocks?
blueheron61 answered:
Thank you so much! I matched three strips that contrasted somewhat, sewed them together and cut them to create the blocks. It was a little tricky to make sure no two similar/like fabrics were next to each other. I love this quilt!
