I love my friend Fred. He is one terrific guy. And even though I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting her, his Mom is also one terrific lady, and MAN can she cook.
So; my first finished (almost) commissioned quilt is for Mrs. F; and I hope she likes it. I wanted something homey but bright, so I chose yellows and browns and pinks for the main colours.

|The Blue border I like best so far. The quilt isn’t skewed I need to work on my photo skills.|
The borders have kinda stumped me; I had a pink in mind but then I thought it might be too ‘young’ for her; so then I thought, well, I can use the yellow floral that is the main large triangle colour. But I wanted to use that for the backing and thatmight be too much
So now……I’m thinking I’m gonna add a border of bright royal blue with a feathery type pattern on it…wonder about some input? Thoughts?
Well… I went and added the blue border; I will post some pics in a bit. I think it’s coming together pretty nicely.
