Kids Quilt

This weekend I finished my kids quilt for Camp Watcha Wanna Do.

It feels great to have it done early...due by June guild meeting...

I wanted to try my hand at an orange/aqua combination and I really do like it.
For the binding I wanted to NOT play it safe.  some Flickr friends suggested I think beyond the blue or orange options and ultimately...I let my daughter decide between an orange, blue, or green binding.

It doesn't "pop" as much as I would have liked...but I think it does do a fine job and keeps the quilt gender neutral...

I was really really really inspired by Carla's Anniversary Crosses quilt.  And I can't wait to now begin putting the top together for the AIDS Fundraiser quilt!

  4. Jenny, this is gorgeous! And I think little Miss C did a great job picking the border color! And, how on earth did you finish something 3 months early?!?!?!

  5. That's beautiful, Jenny! I'm sure the fundraiser quilt is going to be every bit as awesome.

  6. It looks fantastic Jenny! The back is as great as the front. And I need to take a lesson from you and not always play it safe (I feel like that's all I ever do).
