so it´s done! my new bed quilt is all ready, washed and dried and i love it:
fits perfectly into my bedroom.
the colorchoices are supposed to remind of the rising sun and lighten up the room - and they do, don´t they?
the quilting was kind of dreadful though. for the first half i did it "with bare hands" - Silke from vintagekids wondered if i wear gloves for sewing, and for quilting i indeed wear one: the left one to have a better grip. but this quilt, although it is big but not enormous (68x80"), was kind of hard to move.
oh well, next time it hopefully will be better.
detail of the backing: i used a fabric from the Little Darlings line by Darlene Zimmerman (bought at fabricbee on etsy) and just added a bright red stripe (same color as the binding) right in the middle horizontally.
and another bedroom picture (but that´s it, don´t worry :-).
can´t wait to snuggle under it tonight!
