-one way to spend a rainy friday morning-

This is my first attempt at a quilt, and I’d like to keep it small. Are these colors too… weird for a baby quilt? I fell in love with the fabric (the picture may be too small for you to see all the sweet yellow birds) and just decided to make something. I still need to figure out a border… and the back… and a purpose for the blanket. I have ideas.

    i am envious of you and your craftiness! i think it looks spectacular!


  2. Just what I would expect of you, Ruthie! Something not pink and blue. And anyway, brown with bright colors is totally in right now.

    Which means, of course that in 10 or 20 years it will be totally dated like everything else we are wearing or decorating with right now!

    I clicked on the pic to view it larger and yes, sweet little yellow birds!

    i am not a quilter, but i think a dark green border would be nice. the small white squares with green leaves would be nice as the back.

      Well, thank you! I wasn’t expecting anyone to put enough thought into this to actually give me advice. But I love getting other opinions. I bought the fabric in a little bundle. There was one large square of each kind of fabric. I don’t know if I can even find enough matching fabric to do the quilt back. I may end up buying a sheet with coordinating colors and/or design.

      As I’m looking at this photo on my screen, I think it looks very much like a hippie blanket – like a quilt top someone put together in the seventies and forgot to finish. I don’t get that impression in real life though.
