Camp Loopy 2015, Project 3, Finished!
Anyway, back to the quilt! The challenge was to use colors or fabrics you don’t usually use. I almost never use yellow and I have never used this many floral fabrics in one project. There was a decent chance that my quilt would look like a flower shop threw up on it, but I love the finished project. I used a darker red floral for the binding because there are no borders on this quilt, and I felt like a darker color would act a bit like a frame. The backing is a large scale floral. Here’s the label and a peek at the backing:
Once I got these pictures, I put the quilt down and Max saw it for the first time. (He slept through construction and didn’t get a chance to do quality control.) After sniffing it, he plopped down right in the middle of it and took a bath. A very thorough bath. He’s taken several naps under it when it’s spread out, but when I fold it up, he curls up on top of it too. I think he’s claimed it as his own! The photo below may be the last time the quilt and kitten were apart.
