I know it's a simple little quilt, but I am in love with all the texture from the stitching. I tried and tried to get good pictures and even let my husband show me a few little tricks with the camera. Not that it helped too much, 'cuz the quilt looks better in person than in my pics. But I DID try. lol
I'm calling it 'Sweet Dreams'.
Every striped fabric patch has a different (casually drawn) flower stitched onto it. The light catches on the variegated thread that I used and really makes them stand out. You know, if you're actually in the same room with the quilt! Oh well. I'm sure if you click on the pics, you can see the detail better, but don't feel that you have to. I wanted the pics for my blog diary because I know I'll forget after the quilt has been gifted and long gone.
All washed up with that crinkly goodness.
On a completely different note, I finally finished up the 4th border on my Basket Medallion quilt. It's a double saw-tooth border that I sewed up with scrappy pale yellows and tans. I kind of like it and then, I kind of don't. I have ideas for the next border (which definitely influenced the 4th border), so we'll see if it all comes together in the end.

Sometimes the end result is better than I ever imagined and then there are the times that I cringe and go looking for my seam ripper. Only time will tell with this one!
