Well I have made some progress on one of my original ideas. The result is a a quilt I am calling Sunlit Valentine. In this quilt I have probably stretched away from the monochromatic theme a bit toooooooooo far. But the background is dominantly yellow even though the Victorian valentines which are appliqued are multicoloured.
I am really interested how others respond to this quilt. The responses so far have varied from "its exquisite" to "my husband would not allow that on our bed" to "bit plain, boring". Seriously though I am thinking of cutting back the large border to make it a single bed quilt rather than a queen........ WHAT DO YOU THINK????????
