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.

Thanks Bag Lady.

I am getting tired of the square-ness of it all though. I think I need to try something new...

I love that you incorporated the black. It is one of my favorite things in a light colored quilt. :

Thanks jen721.

I wasnt sure about the black polka dots at first, but I love the way it turned out, the colors are really different for me.

I think it's a spunky little quilt !
