Yesterday I finished my Daisy Chain quilt to the flimsy stage. This top now measures 84 inches x 106 inches.
This is a project that I started on December 26, 2009 with my good friend, Linda. The blocks for this quilt have been assembled into rows for some time. As usual, progress on the quilt stopped at attaching the borders. With the last of the “I Love Lucy” reruns playing on my laptop yesterday, I finished off this top.
I took this picture this morning. As you can see, we are in for another great day here–not a cloud in the sky!
Can you see who wanted to get in on the photo action? The cat under the quilt is a stray that has adopted our family and lives in our yard. We have started calling him, “Rambo”. Rambo desperately wants a family of his own. We can’t bring Rambo inside as it upsets Joey to have another cat in the house. So, Rambo lives in the yard and Joey lives in the house and they talk to one another through the glass.
The border fabric is a Hoffman print that has been aging in my stash for quite some time–just waiting for this project to come along.
When I asked my husband last night if he liked this one, he first asked if it was for him. Why is it when you are looking for feedback, they want to know if it is for them? I told him it could be for our bed and then yes, it would be for him and me…..but that was not really answering the question. Then he replied that he wasn’t sure he liked yellow and green together? I asked him if he didn’t think this quilt looked summery. I am not sure I totally heard the answer, nor did I ask him to repeat it. My daughter came by and told me that she likes it. Mental note to self…..don’t ask husband for opinions on my quilts….stick with daughter’s opinions! LOL
