I did not mean to copy you .. I mean it..
It's just that the fabrics in the backgrounds are seersucker and I wasn't sure if they would hold well..
And your quilt is so pretty..
I looked for the large floral.....and since it was a gift for a baby girl,
I thought the floral fabric would be just right..
This fabrics was perfect.
Baby's room is green and orange with Shasta daises on the wall
I think the border was a great idea!
K says it does not look like a quilt for baby. Anything mild I choose for the back is not going to cut it.
Whatever I come up with.. is too loud and busy for a baby..
I have not made many soft pastel baby quilts.
I don't know how to!
Tell me what to do. Anybody?
I am sorry, it looks like I copied you.. I did not mean to..
I just thought I would have an out in open conversation with Nifty.. If you didn't already know that!
I know, she wouldn't mind.
That border is absolutely perfect!! I think it will go with green and daisies just fine. There are large flowers in the print. If it were my baby, I would like this so much more than a soft pastel quilt. Moms and babies are much more fashionable now than they were in our day. I'll bet they'll hang it on the wall! I would be SO excited to get this quilt!ReplyDelete
As for copying, there is no such thing. Just more people having a similar good idea. This is definitely an all-Sujata quilt! Mine turned out less dynamic than yours because I chose the border first, and then chose my scraps to match. Also, I used all new fabrics, many from the same line. Too "matchy, matchy," as Kaffe would say.
Your quilt is gorgeous! I say, sew it up and give it with joy.
P.S. This makes me want to sew up a bunch of similar value scraps for "background," just to have them on hand.ReplyDelete
Wow BOTH quilts are beautiful. I for one love the big flowers in the border. I think it adds to the playfulness of the quilt, perfect for a baby!!!!ReplyDelete
Sajuta be sure to bring this one for Show and Tell next Wednesday!! They will love it.ReplyDelete
I'd say that Sajuta just gave Nifty a great big compliment!!! Wonderful quilt!ReplyDelete
I have to admit.. the crazy backgrounds are fun! Sewing from same old scraps..it gets old seeing the same pieces in every quilt. But I stuck with them.
Kelly, I am not sure if I can bring this one. If it is finished and I am hoping it will be.. It will be gifted this weekend.
Beth, that is what I was going for!
Yes, it IS a great compliment! I am honored. I get so many ideas from YOU, Sujata. It's nice when I can inspire you too!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful quilt! I gasped when I saw it! The border fabric is so bright and full of fun, perfect for a baby in my opinion! The pale plaid backgrounds are wonderful!!ReplyDelete
