Colorful Crib Quilt
Good quilters gather pieces that have different scales, appropriate contrast according to the color wheel, similar hues, etc. I, on the other hand, go for the pretty pictures.
Then, I don't want to cut it up. Come on! These colorful views of childhood in the late forties-early fifties are just too cute to cut into little pieces. This quilt was my way of having my cake and eating it, too. I did FINALLY use it for a quilt, but the squares are large enough to provide big bold pieces of the artist's picture.
This one will probably be donated since we are still in the midst of a baby drought.
