Okay enough of that, I want to show you how I did with Color Me Silly.
Ta-Done! (The top anyway)
It's really some very pretty colors of purple. You might be able to see it if you click on it to make it bigger.
So I originally had Ideas of making it a king size, because I thought it would be for our bed. Well for some reason at the time - (this was several years ago) I could not get the border to line up with the addition of blocks I had used for the enlargement. Hence why it was put in a pile of UFO's to sit for several years.
I came across it a couple of months ago and wanted to finish it. So I took it to the retreat and here it is.
Now, as Paul Harvey would say - "the rest of the story" -Since I had all the extra blocks cut out I told my oldest daughter (my biggest fan) that maybe I could make her a lap quilt out of the left overs. So I started making extra blocks with the left overs. I kept going and going and going.... I have enough to make another whole top. So my Color Me silly will have a twin. Now the difference being that my sewing now verses my sewing 6 years ago has improved so one will be a little improved from the other. And as I'm thinking now - the older one will give me quilting practice for the newer one.
Thanks for reading my rambling - *smile*.
I am going to link this up to One Monthly Goal over at Elm Street Quilts.
I posted this quilt as my goal for July At Elm Street Quilts here. (#46)
I'm sure I'll be posting more pictures of the twin once I have it together. And luck have it I also have backing for both.... What was I thinking?
Have a wonderful day - Blessings,
