Damien’s Quilt Top Is Finished!

2 Jul

Lakeville-20130702-00377

After I made all of the blocks last night, I went to bed! I slept from 8AM to 1PM, and I hopped back on the sewing machine. I was way too excited about this top to do anything else! Even sleep. The only reason I did sleep was because the light burned out in my machine, and I just did not really feel like find a replacement bulb in my room that late at night, well technically morning! However, I do think this beautiful creation was well worth the lack of sleep! I decided to blend with a base of  rail fence block, and then just made it up as I went. I wanted to fade to red on the ends, and then have that be the border. I really think the red makes the green, purple, and orange POP out of the quilt, which is what I wanted! I’m happy with my choice of jewel toned fabrics, and I would do it all over again if I could!

I hope Damien will enjoy sleeping with it as much as I enjoyed making it. Not sure when I’ll get around to quilting it on my machine. That might even happen later today. I’ll keep everyone posted on any updates!
