Just for a moment imagine me doing a cheer leader dance... "Give me an L!!"
"Give me an O!!"
"Give me a Veeee""
" And give me an Eeeeee!!"
"What do we get? We get - LOVE!!!" Rar Raa RAA
I finished The Love Quilt top. I've enjoyed using the Essex Linen/Cotton blend in natural for the background. It's such a great neutral colour with wonderful texture.
I couldn't leave it unpieced though, I felt it needed a few highlights.
Just a few pieces of lighter fabric here and there. They almost look like pieces of paper floating or falling.
I've made the top about 95 x 85 inches. I would love to hand quilt it in colourful perle cotton but I've accepted that I just don't have time. I'll take it to my longarm quilter and she'll make it extra special with her wonderful quilting. The backing will be this colourful Fruitti Tutti quilt I posted for New Years. I figure that way it can be a two sided quilt. A perfect wedding gift for some lovely friends of mine.
I hope you've been doing some lovely sewing lately..
