I really like the big bowties in the center. They are "3-D" in that the center of the bow just floats on the quilt. They are just cleverly sewn in the middle, out of sight.
First off, thanks to everyone who left such nice comments. Hopefully I will stumble and bumble my way to a blog worth visiting. Thank you Stephanie for mentioning my new blog on your blog.
Last year my friends Stephanie and Nonnie and I decided to have a polka dot challenge. We each bought matching fat quarters of 6 different polka dot fabrics. The rule was to complete our projects by Christmas. Nonnie made a too cute toddler quilt with apliqued ice cream cones. Stephanie made a wonderful little picnic mat and matching bag.(if you go to Stephanie's blog, she has pictures of these.) Weeeeeeell, pokey me couldn't come up with a good idea. Needless to say, Christmas came and went and all I had to show for it was nicely laundered and folded polka dot fabric! It took being sick for 2 weeks for an idea to come. Funny how creative one can be when stuck at home blowing one's nose. (sorry, TMI I guess). Well, as I told you in an earlier post, I love to piece but hate to quilt so am showing you the quilt top only. It could be months and months before the rest gets done. Hmmm, maybe I'll just pay to get it quilted. :-)
The quilt top is 51X51 inches.
Talk at you later, Rumi
