2nd Valentine Quilt - DONE!


 
 
It's late but I don't care! I wanted to show you my quilt.  Plus if I don't do it now, I don't know when I will be able too...know what I mean?  So this one measures (approx. 43x54) a little smaller than the red & brown one I did earlier.  I found this backing (which was a flat sheet) on ebay! The colors match so well, it makes me giggle...I told you it would be wild. Not even thinking about it but it hit me a few days ago...even though they are baby/lap sized, I have 'completed' 2 quilts this month.  Now I feel like I'm out of my slump & I will be finishing up my Simplicity quilt before our CGQC deadline!  CHAAAARRRGGGGGE!!!

  2. What a perfect sheet for the back - it TOTALLY compliments the front.

    This one reminds me of a pinwheel blowing in the summer.

    Love it.

  7. Oh my goodness that is absolutely a splendid quilt, and how great is that backing! I love using sheets on the back - not only are they cheaper [I get mine at the thrift] but they FEEL good. Excellent job, Michelle!
