Design Wall Monday 2/13/12

I started with this.  I liked it, thought it was done.  So I quilted it and put the binding on and brought it to my niece for her approval.  I let her choose among three quilts.  She liked this one the best (yay!) but deemed it too small.  SIGH.  Since I've made her wait two years for her "graduation" quilt, I decided to accommodate her wishes.

Here is what I have come up with so far:

I removed the binding and added two more borders - another light green and the pink floral.  I'm thinking these HSTs are just what it needs to make it big enough.

I have my week all laid out before me.  Hop over to Judy's so see what's on other design walls.


  1. OMIgosh, really? That was awfully generous of you to undertake a major redo! That niece is one lucky girl. Love the new plan and hope it comes together quickly!

  2. Wow! You must really like this niece!! I love the effect of the HSTs

  3. Hi, Chris. Lucky niece! Those additional borders really add to an already gorgeous quilt. The greens and muted reds are so pleasing.
