I am marching along with more quilt finishes….
Up today is Kelli’s quilt My Blue Heaven…Yes, I know it’s not blue…let me explain. This is a Bonnie Hunter pattern. If you haven’t discovered this pattern yet, good news for you. It’s in the free pattern section on Bonnie’s site. You can find it here.
Kelli started the quilt when we went to Storm Lake to see Bonnie Hunter. At the time, Kelli had no idea why I was so excited about going. After all, it’s not like me at all to want to do something like drive across the state and go to a retreat. I was pretty determined to go and for the most part had planned to go myself if she wouldn’t go. It’s always been my opinion that Kelli mostly went with to “keep me safe” from the unknown quilter ladies.
Making the quilt scrappy really gives it a different look.
I thought my personal preference would be that this quilt doesn’t look as good totally scrappy as it does going with two colors. I thought the pattern almost gets lost.
Even as a flimsy (finished top) I thought that. Now that it’s done and finished, I don’t feel that way anyway. I think the inner border and binding really do good work to bring is all together.
It’s a fine beautiful quilt though…Having all the colors to choose from did make picking a binding fabric really easy.
I finished up my version quite awhile ago. Here a link back to see mine.
Here’s a picture from the day we started the quilts….That’s from July 2011.
We had so much fun. It makes me want to go to a retreat again!!
So if you made the quilt, what color scheme would you go with??
