Blueberry Surprise Quilt Top

I'm pretty much done.  Not sure if I want to add a border or not...I have time to figure that one out.  This is from the jellyroll my husband got me - not bad.  I like the colors, I just don't care for the fabric.  It reminds me of that batik stuff.  I would never say anything to my husband because I am always grateful/thankful for gifts I receive.  I just wouldn't buy that kind of fabric on my own, it's not my style.

Anyhoo, I have 2 sick guys on my hands this with still some chest pains & was told by the doctor to do nothing over the holiday weekend.  The other little one, woke up with a 101.1 fever Saturday morning and is still sick.  So yesterday (& today) I was able to relax with some sewing when they took their naps.  I hate it for both of them because they love to be outside.  I'm just the opposite.  Til next time...have fun sewing!


  1. It's a funky blueberry surprise quilt Michelle!
    I take it you're not a fan of batiks? Sometimes
    it's good to step out of your comfort zone when it comes to styles/colours...

  2. I know what you mean about Batiks. I am not too fond of it, yet, I have seen some projects that are absolutely beautiful. I think it goes with specific patterns. I like your blueberry surprise! It can be a comfort quilt for hubby as he recuperates!
    Take care of those guys and of Michelle!

  3. I understand you saying it isn't your style because it really isn't mine either. BUT, it is cheerful and I bet you find a good home for it! Sometimes it is good for us to work outside our norms! I am so excited you are joining in the swap!

  4. Wow, so much going on -- love your quilt. I'm not a big fan of batiks either, but this one is so bright and cheery! Great job - and very sweet Hubby. Hope everyone is feeling better.
