Red + Aqua Finished

Red + Aqua Finished

There's nothing like a really bright crinkly quilt fresh out of the dryer to make my day. I stippled this one, mainly because I love the crinkly look, and I hadn't stippled in awhile, I was having withdrawals. It was really fun, I finished it within a couple of hours because I just couldn't stop. I love the way it turned out, really crinkly, really soft, and nice and warm to cuddle under.

I literally had to STUFF it in the quilt basket, which could be a problem. I'm going to need a much bigger basket, or a hutch like this one. Or maybe I should just stop making ( and keeping) so many quilts!

It's GORGEOUS! :) If it doesn't fit in your basket it can come and live in mine... :)
But the hutch is a good option too...

Your quilt is simply wonderful! This is such a hot color combination, and I recently learned from contacts on flickr a new word - rocqua -for red+aqua. Your are rockin' it beautifully!

Great work Alison! I'm going to attempt to finish my first bigger quilt this weekend, about 36x47, so wish me luck. I love Ben's quilt too, might have to copy that one for my little guy.

You have now inspired me to do a Red & Aqua quilt! I will add that to the list of quilts I want to make.
Of course I will now have to go to Target and check out the clocks!

Love the basket full of goodness and thank goodness I haven't seen that clock.

Crafty Girls Workshop said...

I like that clock! Question though, is it noisy? I bought a little table clock from IKEA and even though it's super cute, it ticks VERY loudly and is annoying. I want to be reminded of the time when I look at the clock, not when I'm trying to concentrate! Thanks for sharing your quilts, wow, you sure are busy!
