A Fall Flimsy

I really prefer "autumn" to "fall," as words go.  But I couldn't pass up the alliteration.

Remember those 6" HSTs I found a few weeks ago and didn't know what I'd intended them for? Well, I never did figure it out! I had 'em up on the wall for a while and decided there weren't enough. So I made some more and let them all hang on the wall together for a couple of weeks. And then put borders on.

I like it. That green border was a real reach for me, and I'm so happy that I did it! It's a size that would be good for a little kid, not a baby. Perhaps for an 18-month-old boy to take to day care for nap time.  

What do you think, Amy?

Sounds like you have someone very specific in mind. And I hope they know how lucky they are. This is a wonderful use for those orphan pieces.

Sweet little quilt!

Brenda said...

I like the scrappiness and the different directions of the bow ties (that's how they look from here.)

I do love the colors and the print in that outer border is fab!

Diane said...

OH I like that a lot.

Yes, indeed, Miss Nancy, that’s a really nice piece of talent. Love the borders-the small green and then that lovely print.

Greta said...

I agree with Brenda, though quite simple, there is novelty here with the color arrangement making diagonal "bow ties. The bold white bow-tie gets us looking in that direction.

I love what you did with the blocks. Perfect for nap time if you ask me.

Very nice -- soothing combination, just right for a nap. Why was the green inner border a difficult decision? It looks just right to me.
