A Tale of Three Quilts #2






Here's the second of these three quilts.  You can read more about them and see the first quilt in my previous post.  This one is my secret favorite, maybe because I broke the rules a bit and ended up using more of my 'loved' fabrics, as opposed to only 'liked' fabrics.

Or maybe because it's  reminiscent of the colors I'm using as my nursery theme.  Warm grays, minty aquas and golden yellows.  Yummmm.....  You know I'm not normally a gray person, but in this setting it really works for me!

The backing is flannel that  I bought for something else and then when it arrived it was a different shade than I was imagining.  I thought the background would be cream, but it has a greenish hue to it.  I guess that's just the joy of shopping online, not everything I purchase turns out to be how I envisioned.  Most of the time it's a happy ending though, since  it can be used in a future project where it fits just right!

So that's two of the three quilts, just the girly one to show you yet!

  3. Oh, Joelene, you have done it again! You never fail to make me want to drop whatever I'm doing and start digging through my fabric bins and just dream of emulating your work. Seriously.

  9. I just absolutely love your style and color choices! These fabrics are fantastic. I can see why they were your "loved" fabrics. Is the center square 3"? I'd love to make one. I suppose you could start with any size center square.
