Yesterday I put the last stitches in the "Day&Night" quilt and gave it to
its new owner. It is a yellow and gold sawtooth star quilt on blue
background ( mostly Debbie Mumm blues ) with a narrow dark blue inner
border, a sawtooth border and a dark blue wide outer border. I used a gold
for the binding, not the most practical color, but it looked best. The back
is a Debbie Mumm fabric that has golden suns on a blue and tan stripe.
The name Day & Night came to me because the back suggested day ( sun up )
and the front is the night ( all those stars on the blue background, the
outer border also features a print with tiny stars on blue ). I also at one
point worked on it day&night and I hope it will get used both day&night.
The new owner is a baby girl that didnt have much to say about it but she
did drool happily on it !
The parents were so happy and that really made my day. I love giving away
quilts to people that hadnt expected one but immediately recognizes the
time and effort youve spent.
Time for chocolate and a new project !!!
