Much, Much Better!


Oh yeah! This is way better without the green squares, don't you think? I absolutely love it and I am so glad I ripped out those yucky green squares!

However, I was left with the problem of my blanket being too short on the sides. So, my solution was to use my extra cut quilt pieces to piece together a super sweet border. I think it really ties the blanket together. 

Ta da! It's not as long as our current blanket, but oh well! I think it turned out beautifully! Yay!

Now I'm working on quilting in the ditch around the white squares. I'm not sure what I'll do about quilting the border. I'm sure I'll figure something out. :-)

P.S. I asked my husband what he thought about it and he looked at me and said, "You're amazing." I laughed and said, "But what do you think about the quilt?" He looked at it and said, "It's interesting." Which is my husband's language for "The colors are too bright." Ha ha! Well, this is our spring quilt (thanks Holly for the seasonal quilt idea!), and I think we'll need a bit of cheering up after a long winter, don't you think? This quilt will be perfect for that! :-D
