Pickle Dish Quilt Top
Here is the top--isn't it just bright and so fun? I'm so excited and very, very happy with it. Worried that it might be too crazy and not as pretty as the one in Kaffe Fassett's book, but it looks just fine to me. I got the backing today--a white flannel with pink ladybugs and flowers on it. And ordered the material for the border. It is Kaffe Fassett's roman glass pink--very bright pink with rather crazy circles on it. Just figured if I'm going for vibrant may as well go all the way!! Hopefully, it'll be all done soon. Am going to try quilting it on my machine. Haven't tried anything too big, so we'll see, but it's about the same size as others I've done before. Planning to get some bicycle clips, quilting gloves and maybe a couple other things that are supposed to make machine quilting go more easily. Of course, it would probably help to clear off my sewing table!! Can you tell I'm so excited about this?
