I liked their FB page as AmateurQuilter. :)
Congrats!! I'll be in touch! :)
And a finish! I told you you'd be seeing a lot of finishes from us lately, just this week Dottie, then Sail Away Skirt and now:
Can you guess why I named it that? ;) I wouldn't say that pinks/reds are out of my comfort zone because I LOVE color. So I guess neutrals would be out of my comfort zone or something :) But I always always gravitate to blues and greens. Even if it has red or pink or purple in it I always think, "You know what would look lovely with this...a blue (or green)!" Lol.
So for me it is so striking! And so different, I love seeing it hang over my quilt rack.
The pattern I used was pretty simple (just one I came up with, I didn't use an actual pattern). I used coordinating Michael Miller solids. And they matched perfectly. And if you haven't seen/used MM solids yet I've heard a little misconception out there, that the solids just match their lines. Which may be true but I use their solids ALL THE TIME, there are sooo many colors, they definitely work outside their lines as well.
I went for a super scrappy back which I think works for this line really well.
I have to tell you, the size of the quilt directly correlates to the look on my husbands face when I ask him to squat for pictures. Yesterday it was overcast (in hot AZ) and I asked him to help me take some pictures. We had 3 quilts to do, and they started out his height down to a baby quilt. This one was in the middle. Ahh...so funny, I didn't know how put out a grown man can get :)
The quilt is roughly 40 x 50, a throw or child size.
And the quilting. Oh the quilting. Aunt Wendy is amazing (she's in Utah if anyone wants her info). Like I've been saying, with baby girl coming in October I've got so many projects I've been finishing up lately I've just been saying "One for me, one for Wendy, one for me, one for Wendy...".
There you have it ! My pretty in pinks, reds and purples Be Mine quilt. I think it might look really cute with a little princess in the middle of it :)
