Moody Blues!

Happy day! Though I am not sure - perhaps lacking a charm that Kate's quilt has - hopefully it has a mood of its own. I am so pleased to have it finished, such a simple quilt, but quite a marathon effort for me. I think it will be quite a while before I sew a full sized quilt again - maybe never. I am just so thankful I can still do handwork - I am going to have another try at clamshells again and also a little play with applique. I'm so looking forward to having it quilted.
Hope your day is happy, too!

Hi Lurline, I think you do yourself a dis-service. The quilt is gorgeous. So light and fresh and to me every bit as charming as Kate's.
Worth all the effort!

It's wonderful, so fresh and crisp! I know you're a whiz kid, but I just figured out what works for me with the clamshells so give me a shout if you wish.

I love it! Very simple and clean looking. I have been working a lot with white backgrounds lately, and I think they will always be in style.

Oh Lurline this is so lovely, so simply and quite smashing! It will surely take the quilting with delight, wont it? Enjoy the clamshells. I've made quite a bit of progress on mine but I my method (inklingo) is both simple and difficult. Have to use my brain which I'm not always a fan of. Using my brain I mean... Warm and sparkly hugs, *karendianne.
