I love it hanging over the fence! Too bad it can't just live there.

Thanks for helping me pin it on and keeping me company while we got it quilted--it's way more fun to work when you have Dr. Pepper and a friend ;o)

I just came across your blog, from the "Apron Girls". How fun! Anyway, I was just curious if you used a pattern for this quilt and how do you decide on your color placements? I've done a little quilting (am interested in doing more). Thanks!

V & Co. said...

kim- all i did for the quilt was cut out 8x8 inch squares, as for the placements i just did a random pattern and i would step back and look to see where my "so and so" block needed to go,i try to destribute the brite colors so that they arnt all close together. it's all just from looking at it, but don't stare at it too long cause you will drive yourself crazy trying to make it better and better and better, just go with your first look. good luck! i'm happy to answer any other questions you might have. ( if i know the answer!)
