I love everything about it: It is large (about 80″ square). The colors are just right. The muslin background gives a different look than the bright white I often use. The quilting is customized to the quilt and adds a dimension all its own.
Yep, it makes me happy.
Soon the 1-1/4″ version will be complete and I will have the entire happy family together to admire. What fun that will be!
Some time ago I was gifted a complete kit with pattern of the Safe Haven Quilt by Thimbleberries. It wasn’t exactly my typical style, but I thought it would do me good to use an actual pattern, different color scheme, larger size pieces and a little applique.
So I made the blocks. And enjoyed it.
But, then I really looked at the setting and discovered I didn’t like it. It isn’t so bad in the pattern, but I have seen pictures of finished quilts on beds, and it isn’t for me. At all. I am sure many people do like it very much. Maybe I have just gone as far out of my comfort zone as I can manage.
