I admit it: I like quick and easy quilt patterns…they’re like takeout for quilters. While I can certainly appreciate, drool over and covet those intricately made and excessively quilted works I see at quilt shows, me, I like ’em easy. Kind of like Himself. Hey, that’s his assessment, not mine!
Perhaps it’s today’s fast-paced get-it-done-in-a-hurry mentality and I have willfully given myself over to it. So be it. I’ll be quick and easy, too. So for today’s (almost) finish, I have a quasi-jelly roll top and a decision to make.
Each print is modern and funky and there’s even orange in there which I love, love, love! So, what’s a girl to do? I decided a lap quilt (for moi) was in order.
Because it was about the equivalent of a half-jelly, it went together very quickly and without the cursing that is inherent in dealing with a full-length jelly strip. Oh, you don’t curse when untangling all that length? Well, aren’t you special!
Now, I have to decide on the border. Me, I like thick chunky borders. Like my thighs, only not as white and without the cellulite. Y’all help me decide which looks best, okay. I’ve got two choices picked out: a dark gray polka dot on light gray or a tone on tone white with stars.
Yes, the light is crap in this picture, but work with me here. At first I thought gray, but now it just seems to pull the life outta the strips so I’m thinking white instead. Opinions? Oh, come ON, I know you’ve got them! Tell me what you think in the comments.
