Ashley's Topped

I finished this quilt top late last night :)  YIPPEE!!!  It's been cut out for a LONG time!  I seem to think that I don't want to quilt this today.  I am not sure what color thread to use.  It will probably have to be white or cream.  Hmmmmm......
I am off to go see my dad.  He had knee replacement on Tuesday.
Have a GREAT Thursday!
Quilting plans for the rest of this week....
AUSTIN's Quilt!

I hope to at least get it cut out and the top sewn.  It's going to be a simple patchwork, similar to Reagan's quilt, except bigger squares and no chenille flowers.  Maybe a chenille block or two ;)  Austin is blind and severely autistic.  Texture is everything to him.  His mom picked fabric that she likes but is masculine enough for a 16 year old boy ;D  Hopefully he will like this quilt.  He has gone places with a pink quilt because it is the right weight, size and texture ;D  My sil doesn't care much what color it is, so long and Austin is happy :)

I also found a group of new quilt bloggers that are linking together to support each other :)  Link back and check out all of the new enthusiasts!  marciascraftysewing.blogspot.com

    1. HI! Funny about the orange. Both of the orange ones were chosen by others. The orange is growing on me ;D I am going to have to go check out some variegated thread! Great idea!

  7. I love the color palette you chose - especially with the aqua sashing. I always debate which thread to use for quilting and seem to always default an off-white color. I'm going to check out the link you posted for the new party.
