This week I'm working on layering and basting my Pickle Dish quilt. It's fairly big, 67 x 81, so I had to move the table and chairs out of the dining room to have enough space to lay it out.
I like to work in there in the morning because the light is good coming in from the front window. The layers are all smoothed out and ready to be pinned.
DH looks at this and sees Dr. Seuss. My SIL saw it laid out and said "CandyLand." I really didn't want a juvenile quilt, especially for how much work has gone into this one. Sigh.

Basting a larger quilt like this can take time. I hope you are giving yourself some breaks as you work on it.ReplyDelete
It doesn't look juvenile to me. It looks happy!ReplyDelete
I don't think it looks juvenile at all! It certainly has a little bit more joy in it than something with more muted colors but it is absolutely beautiful!ReplyDelete
I see Dr. Seuss too because of the colors but it is not a juvenile quilt!ReplyDelete
Stop listening to the nay sayers. It's a great quilt that makes a joyous statement. Be proud of it.ReplyDelete
You know, I see HAPPY when I look at your pickle dish quilt; you have inspired me to make one....sometime soon! Keep on, you are awesome.ReplyDelete
I don't see juvenile either. It's a very fun and vibrant quilt. Looking forward to seeing it all quilted and bound.ReplyDelete
Love it! It's snappy and vibrant and fun!ReplyDelete
