I thought I was going to wait for another post until after I finished this quilt. But it seems like I have hit the wall and going no where.
At first, I was not sure if I was going to use borders for this quilt. This quilt was just a fun experiment and had no ultimate goal.. I kept making my fancy baskets and as I made them the crazy patched up background seemed like a really good idea. I did have a great time making those blocks.
After looking at nifty's quilt, I thought of making it into a baby quilt and gifting it to our niece.
According to my daughter, the baskets are just right for a little baby..her quilt should be soft and gentle in colors and pattern...
In my book.. soft and gentle does not exist.. Colors have to be bright. Use of dark and light is a must!
I kept making my baskets..with wonky bases and handles because they are fun to make!
Now the quilt top is finished. I need to choose a backing.
I think I am going to go with another crazy..
I hope the baby does not stay awake all night with bright and poppy colors..
That would not be good.
But as long as she is warm and cozy..
She will be alright!
What do you think?
Soft and gentle or wild and crazy for the back?
