Blush Lap Quilt..... Just not my cup of tea yet

I was able to finish piecing the squares and border for the blush lap quilt.  I arranged it all out on the floor and stepped back to take a look.  I thought, It's just not my cup of tea yet.  Maybe it will grow on me.  I don't know why I don't like it right away.  I love the blush fabric colors and I love the In a Jiffy pattern but when the two came together, just not the "aha" moment I was looking for.  

I still have to sew the quilt blocks together and then add the border.  Maybe after the pressing it, I'll like it more.  What do you think, I can take it.  Hubby said, very unconvincingly.... "It's cute, it will grow on you".

Hope everyone is staying warm and dry in the snow.  We had 24" today.  It was just beautiful today since we didn't have to be anywhere.  My favorite photo was our bluebird box which had about a 10" pile on it.  The snow is about halfway up the pole.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Trish, I am glad you found my blog. I can't believe you were at the John while I was in the hospital too. I was not there for cancer stuff though, just a newly diagnosed kidney disease. I will take some time getting to know you and will become a follower too! The blush quilt will come together. I usually feel ambivilent until the border is on too. Take care, Steph
