top finished under the midnight wire


If I don't post too much I will get this uploaded right before midnight. I wasn't sure if this would work with only two colors, however, I think it actually turned out all right. It's 40 inches by 56 inches, a nice sized lap quilt. Tomorrow, seam the backing, sandwich, pin, and quilt. I am considering yellow for the binding..as the back will be yellow. This all came from stash by the way!
If I am real brave, I have a wonderful varigated purple thread to quilt it with...you can't have too much purple, right?

I like it! And I think the variegated thread is a great idea. What are you going to do as a design? I'm sure it will comfort your friend for a long time.

Very fresh-looking with the purple and white. Purple variegated should set it off a treat.

verigated purple with a yellow binding will be really cheerful. And you made it, just under the midnight wire :-)

Actually, it looks terrific in only two colors!And you are right, it is NOT possible to have too much purple.

IT looks great and you are right. You can never have too much purple. THe varigated purple should make a really nice quilting accent.

What did I tell you---you would keep plugging just to prove me wrong about biting off too much for the weekend! Looks nice and worked up quickly especially since I know you didn't have a thing cut till later in the day.

I don't believe there is ever enough purple! Also good in combo with yellow or gold.

You've probably already started the quilting but I have to say that I would go with white thread - I don't like dark thread on a light background - just a personal choice based on a BAD experience!

Gotta love that 11:59 time line...LOL. Great job on the quilt! I think it's wonderful..! I don't think you could make one that isn't a great quilt.
I hope you are brave enough to use the purple, but certainly understand that it's going to someone else..*VBS* I'm sure they will love whatever you do. Hugs, Finn

the quilt looks great in the two colors. I'm hoping to do this pattern some day.

Two-colour quilts are always fresh and clean looking, no matter what two colours they are! The variegated thread for quilting will be great :-)

Hi Cher,

I forgot to let you know last evening that I mailed your package yesterday. It should reach you probably on Friday. Hope it will be of use to you ... if not, feel free to pass it along.
Jeanne :)

No such thing as too much purple.
