Happy Dance! This Top is Finally Finished.

I'm so happy to share this one with you since I needed advice from some of y'all to help me get this one together.  The double frames with the dark brown and the stripe made everything much better.

If there is a next time with this pattern, I'll pick my fabrics more carefully to use a high contrast light or dark for the frames.

Anyway, it's been a pretty day for sewing and cleaning house.  An audiobook kept me engaged and distracted me from the live news broadcasts. 

Since the afternoon allows, I think I'll return to the dragon on the quilting frame.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Fabulous, I love it. And you did it....using the stripe for the borders is genius. The dark frame gives a lot of depth overall. Great example on how to pull fabrics together and make them work. You found the secret by using values.

  2. That's my kind of Christmas quilt - excellent! May I ask which pattern you used for it?

  3. Oh, how pretty it turned out! But then, what else would would you produce?

  4. WOW! This is a beautiful quilt. The colors are wonderful and remind me of Christmas. Love it!!
