A new quilt!

I made another quilt!  This one is for Melinda & her family, who received it the other day.   Now that she has it in her hands, I can show it to you!

It’s a strip quilt made from lots of colorful polka-dot fabrics, and also includes my favorite Elephant fabric plus some Flea Market Fancy that I’m surprised I still haven’t used up after all this time (though, it’s on its last legs to be sure, heading into “scrap” status at this point).  Melinda’s family includes two adorable children.  I’m hopeful that the kids find this quilt’s colorful disposition not quite as blinding as I do, and instead find it to be fun and joyful instead.

Here’s a view of the front:

Here’s the back (or – the other front)! Mostly brown, some more polka dots for good measure:

I’ve got a few more projects on the docket, but I’m laying off the polka dots for a while for the next up.

Hope you’re all having a great weekend!

    Hi Eva,

    Let’s see… lots of fabrics to name. There are some elephants by Daiwabo, a few teal patterns from Denyse Schmidt’s Flea Market Fancy, and some Monaluna Mingle, I think. The only one I dont’ really know about it the yellow one that isn’t elephants. Not sure where that one came from!
