Description

Yellow & Grey Blanket:  This blanket is just turned and topstiched.  I love how simple it is.  It's also a nice weight because I lined it with white muslin on the inside since the grey dots were showing through the yellow.  You can't see it but I topstitched it in yellow so it would contrast on the grey.  It measures 30" square.

Teal & Brown Quilt:  This is a wholecloth quilt.  I wouldn't have picked these fabrics, but I wasn't in charge of that, I was just hired to sew.  :)  I really like how it turned out though.  I just quilted horizontal lines across the back every 4 inches.  I did the binding by hand, and I really like how it turned out with the large polka dots (again, wouldn't have been my first choice, but it turned out nice).  The dot fabric is a very dark chocolate brown and I am having trouble getting the color right in the photos, but it's not black.

I'm finding that everything you post I want to copy! Love these fresh bright colors. I'm a big fan of yellow and gray together!

I am so in love with that gray graphic. Who makes it? I can see it as a good binding candidate too. I wonder if it comes in other colors?

Terryt1955 I know it came from Joann's. I feel like it's from the DS Quilts stuff from Denyse Schmidt, but I'm not certain it's exactly the same. It didn't say on the selvage (I don't think?).

Terryt1955 Nevermind, it's not quite the same as the DSQ one. You can see that one here on Flickr (not my photo). http://www.flickr.com/photos/loomandshuttle/6890542096/ Almost the same, but they're both at Joann's.
