Okay, I can finally show you my second quilt of the eleven I plan to finish in 2011--I've been calling this the Back Home Again/Ellery quilt (pattern name/fabric line) for lack of a better name but I'm going to have to come up with something that actually fits. The shades/colors remind me of sherbet. Any suggestions?
This isn't a great photo. The original photo file was sharper but too large so I had to adjust it down a bit. Oh, well. You can kind of see there on the side that I added the white eyelet lace around the edge. You can also kind of see in this photo and the next one the pillow covers I made, but they're on the back pillows, so you can only see the tops of them. I also covered the panels on the wall.
Funny story: The panels are foam core board at their base and are attached to the wall with Velcro. I had only completed the middle one and put it up last night before we went to bed. As Hubby and I were starting to drift off to sleep, we heard the unmistakable sound of Velcro separating. The light came back on, and sure enough--the panel was half off the wall. I resecured it, but I don't think either of us got a very sound sleep, wondering whether we'd be hit on the head in the middle of the night by a falling fabric panel!
This evening (as I watched Amazing Race and the Academy Awards), I pieced a throw pillow cover to match. Can you tell the cats like the new quilt?
When they're cluttering up an area like this, I call it "kitty litter." It's time, now, to go nudge them aside, because it's MY turn to enjoy the new quilt!
