Official

It's official. Dilly Dally aka melon/creamsicle has now attained the rank of flimsy! Taa Daa!

I tried to get pictures outside, but the wind kinda got the one laying in the snow. But the sunshine on the flimsy looks good, doesn't it? Only in the 20's today, but with the sun shining, it feels so much nicer.

I needed a border and binding fabric. Mr LQ thought brown would bring out the brown in the quilt, but I couldn't find a brown I liked. I think the green sets it off very nicely. Brown might have been too bold for the soft colors in this quilt.

I went to Attic Windows Quilt Shop in Comstock Park and asked for help. Got several gracious people to help me. First Chris, the owner. Then Caroll, who blogs at westmichquilter.blogspot.com 
It was so nice to put a face with the blog. And Judy, who was taking a class (so was Caroll). 
I certainly appreciated all their help. I also picked out 13 fabrics for the triangle quilt along. (on my side bar)

Next up is Celtic Solstice. I put one block together.

Now that I have one block together, I can use that as a guide and make a ton more. I have to make 40 of these.


Thanks,
Lin

I love how your quilt turned out. Don't you just love that border and aren't you glad you picked that fabric! Great choice. So nice to meet you!

Just love the Dilly Dally and the green border was a good choice. I have almost finished the top of my Hummingbird quilt today. It just needs some border fabric and then I'll get to blogging again.

I think you did a great job on the quilt top (I guess that's what you call a flimsy?) I like the border colour. You got some great advice.

I love the sweet soft colors in the quilt top. The green was a great choice.

Yes! That Dilly Dally looks fabulous! And the border fabric is sweet! Brown for the binding would work nicely. Glad to hear you are in with the Triangle Quilt Along! This is going to be sew much FUN!
