I started making a churn dash quilt for my sister-in-law last April. Her birthday is in July, so I’d have plenty of time to finish it right? Yeah, no. It didn’t work out that way. But, I did get it finished in time for Christmas…… along with one for me!
I used fabric by Jennifer Paganelli that I have had for years and years. They were just waiting for the right quilt(s) to come along.
For my sister-in-law’s quilt, I chose a happy, green and blue small print fabric. Since the backing is bright green and purple, I thought subdued would be a better border choice.
The second quilt I opted for a bright, bold, green, rose print.
I chose a calmer backing for this quilt.
The green combination was a bit of a gamble, but there are so many colors on the front, I figured I could get away with it. Sometimes you just have to go with what you love!
We now have two happy, bright colored, cuddle in the winter quilts!
