I was tired of working on the project I've been plugging along at (32 of Bonnie's pineapple blossom blocks in pink and brown) - so I decided to make a test block of the next quilt I am making. It will be a baby quilt for Maddie's teacher, who is due to have a baby boy in the middle of June. Her due date is the 19th but I told her that the 17th is a great birthday! Mine!
Her colors are chocolate brown, the blue in the block, and then a sagey green (the cross-hatched fabric in the picture). I like the block pattern - it would only require 4 blocks, some sashing, and a couple of borders.
I guess my question is - does the blue stand out too much? Would it work better somewhere else in the block?
I asked Maddie what she thought of it. She said "I like it - make me a quilt just like it." Why isn't she always this easy to please?
So, what do you think?
