OPINIONS PLEASE.....

Which Background colour???

Pale Blue with tiny white spots...

Light Green or....

Lilac??? I have not trimmed the blocks yet, so don't go noticing how uneven they are!!! I did not use a pattern, just slapped them together!
I am going to make a kid's quilt out of the blocks, or a couple of cot quilts....
These blocks were so quick and easy to make, my kind of block! *smiles*
Today... well the family is home from school/work... we need to do a grocery shop, and some gardening... some housework.. and it all has to be done TODAY, as tomorrow we go out of town to get the COCO!
ONWARD...
COCO... I have had her name ready for at least 2 years! If Teddy had been a girl he would have been named Coco... the breeders had been calling Coco "Missy"... but once I bought her they have been calling her Coco too. So, Yes ... I named her.
The kids are going on and on about tomorrow... today better go FAST!
I have now made 74 heart blocks... hopefully enough to make two matching single bedspreads for our spare bedroom! Just have to buy the sashing material, borders etc.... it's looking like the LILAC material is coming out on top of the favourites! Stew and I think so too... even though I love blue, the lilac just accentuates the blocks so well!
Off to do the grocery shopping now... JOY.
End of Day: we had the most awesome Beef Spare Ribs for dinner, with lovely veges. Bliss. Having a quiet evening... tired! Looking forward to tomorrow, hopefully it will stop raining! nite nite.

  3. Personally, I like the lilac. I think it makes a bolder statement and makes the other colors pop out more.

    Can't wait to see new photos of Coco!

    XOXO,

  18. PS: we are finding out our bubba's gender next week, s I might be putting in a - real - order for a lovely pink or blue quilt. Well, especially if it's a girl as we already have so much blue stuff of Guy's.

    But, seriously, I will pay for the materials and your time etc... xxx

  24. Yes, lilac is my choice too. You should put the pattern to paper and sell it on etsy. It is so cute
