The colors are so vibrant, but at the same time not too much. Her fabrics give me a new appreciation for gray. It softens the red and the aqua, but doesn't bring it down to the blah level. The yellow polka dot isn't part of the collection, but it picks up some of the yellow in her prints quite nicely.
I used a sheet for the back, and did a huge zigzag pattern across the quilt - I guess it might be a chevron? I don't pay attention to certain things...like proper names. In my grad-level statistics course we used all these symbols for everything, and when we had to recite an equation I would name what I thought the symbol should be called instead of what it was actually called (oodle...squiggly with an x...something else that had a hat that I don't remember...it gets you strange looks but hey - whatever works :)
I used a darker turquoise thread for the back to give it a wee bit of depth, but you can't tell in the photos. I'm still surprised I found a sheet that matches so well. It's the back so it doesn't matter too much, but I'm slightly OCD with certain things.
I like how the white stitches on these prints mimic the 'stitching' of the fabric. Sorry, there are a lot of photos. I'm loving these colors!
This little girl would most likely be me.
I was more likely to be found off reading somewhere, even at recess, than doing this:
I am so happy this is finally done! I get this thing going in my head where I worry I won't be able to finish things by the time I had wanted to have them finished. Once I start they zip right along but I worry myself into a frenzy for nothing (usually).
