needs a name...

This one needs a name. Any suggestions ?

Marley ? Maybe ?

And just like that, all done. 

I backed this quilt with a lime green vine pattern. The binding is the white/black flowers I talked about before. I really, really like this one. The finished size ended up being 38" by 45", smaller than a crib quilt.

Pretty sure this one is headed off to my niece Nevaeh in South Carolina.

i like marley

My newest quilt top. I put it all together yesterday afternoon. I have actually had the fabric cut for months and months and yesterday I got sick up looking at it all piled up and decided to do something with it.

It has a pretty flower pattern in it, which makes it girlie, but the black polka dot and the blue swirls make it a little more "tom-boy" girlie. At least I think anyway.

The binding is going to be a black on white tiny flower design (left over from another project) I have no idea what I am going to use for the back, which gives me yet another excuse to wander around the fabric store aimlessly.

Like I really need an excuse.

I think when it is all finished I will send it away to my niece.

Jane ?

I started this top last weekend.  I am going to call it Jane. I don't know if I really like it. Different colors for me, but I do like the red and brown together. 

The back is going to be a plain brown and the binding will be the pattern fabric that is on the front.

I don't think I am going to be working on it anytime soon. Dealing with family issues and a very busy weekend coming up. I have been wanting to make some more napkins, so I might do those first.
