first finish of the year
This is the first in a series (I hope) of monochromatic quilts. When I started this yellow one, I was very nervous that it was going to turn out putrid. Much to my relief, I don't think it did...I love the results. If you didn't notice, I am hooked on random piecing. I think the pieces of vintage sheet (thank you, Roxanne) really helped tie all the colors together.
I backed it with yellow polka dot fabric from last weekend's shopping trip.
The finished size is about 43" x 51".
After washing and drying, it puckered up nicely.
I. love. that.
(is it just me, or is spell check not working on blogger? I had to get out my dictionary to see if I spelled putrid right.)
