Apparantly The Layout ‘Doesn’t Work’

November 19, 2009 at 11:26 am 4 comments

…At least according to Suzannah, age 8, my slightly impertinent daughter.  While I really liked it, the last layout was given a big thumbs down, despite what you all thought.  *gasp*  So, after turning and fidgeting and fussing, I came up with this.  I’m calling this quilt ‘bunting’ because the sides remind me of the fabulous triangle banners everyone is making these days.

I really like the red border. 

Also, the bigger areas of white are really pleasing to me. 

And, after laying this out the aforementioned impertinent daughter gave this one a ‘big thumbs up’, and “will it be done in time for my sleepover party?”  ….which is in one week.

    Well, I loved the first layout, but this one is fabulous, too!

    this is a very pretty quilt. I think it will look even better when it’s quilted! Isn’t it nice when the kids like them??

    Looks beautiful. Funny how daughters are. You are brave to show it to her rather than to just surprise her and say, “here it is!” Love this one and the first one too. I’m doing the surprise for my 5 yr olds birthday, but hers is just a lap quilt. However I’m painting her walls as well. At least I know she likes the colors.
