Quilting it up
For Christmas, just a month after I caught the quilting bug, my husband gave me some fabric and said "make something." Well, I had been stalking Crazy Mom Quilts Blog and LOVE so many of her amazing quilts. It was so hard deciding which to try. In the end, I couldn't help but brazenly copy her whirlygiggle quilt.
I don't know about you, but when I start making a quilt, I often have noidea where it is going to end up. Let me take you through one of the many decisions I agonized over with this one. I loved the colors in the blocks, but couldn't help wondering...was it too plain?
First Idea: just join the blocks. Its clean and simple and lets the fabric colors really play with each other.
