Quilt #106 :: Good Morning, Eileen

I am some catching up to do sharing my finished quilts! Today I'm sharing quilt #106, which I called Good Morning Eileen because it's made from the oops blocks when I made my Good Night Irene quilt. 

My original idea for the Good Night Irene quilt was to make all scrappy blocks. But I decided that they were too busy together.

 I kept the blues and replaced the turquoise blocks with ones that used the same two prints. Much better.
I didn't want to waste the turquoise blocks, so I alternated them with big blocks to come up with a new quilt. It was an easy finish and was perfect for the project for which they were made: gifts for a local kindergarten class. 

I can't show the photo of the adorable boy who chose this quilt, but I can share a picture of my adorable boy with it.

  1. I really like the colors, the teal and light grey one, especially. Great quilts.

  2. What a good save, to use the blocks you didnn't want in one quilt, in another! Great idea.

  3. I think you made an excellent decision to make two quilts. I think the problem with the first one was everything was too close in value. When you changed to the dark grey, everything popped. Congrats on two great finishes!

  4. I love your quilts! And the oops blocks made a spectacular quilt!


We love hearing from you!
