It's been a while...



Watermelon something...


I have decided to do some quilting again. This quilt was started 3 years ago at "A Quilters Garden" in Marlborough Massachusetts. It was originally to be a hand applique quilt, and I had completed 2 1/4 blocks and it went on the shelf. Well, I have decided to dust off my sewing machine, my quilting talent and finish some of my quilts. This one is striking in person, not sure why I chose the colors I did, it goes with nothing in my house, but I do love the colors, and the design. I have already added little YoYo's between the leaves as I did not like the spaces between being different.

The second image shows the yoyo's. I took this picture inside and the colors are not as vibrant. I am now adding beads to the Watermelon Quilt top, will have to see how far I get with that. I also have a Bento Box Quilt that is purples and yellows. I will post a picture of that one soon.

Lovely quilt... but I have to ask. Will I ever get my socks? (sniff)

You've chosen "my" colors ~ to be sure! Adding the yo-yo element is awesome.

Happy beading!

Lovely quilt. The color contrast brings out the pattern.
