Some Days Go On and On





I'll pick the winner of the Dixie DIY candle Saturday afternoon as Friday never stopped!

I've made progress on joining this monster blanket this week. This part feels faster than making all of the granny squares, although, I would've guessed it would be the most tedious part. It might actually get finished on time! I'm going to add a scallop trim to the edge when I'm done and I'm thinking either orange or gray. What do you suggest?

Happy weekend! Another giveaway and some yummy eye candy coming this way soon.

xoxo,
Rachel

How beautiful your quilt is! It will be such a special keepsake for her throughout her life and god willing, she will be able to pass it on to her children-not like you have the time now, but be sure to document the making of it for future gens to see!
Oh-grey gets my vote!

Stephanie said...

Rachel,
it was so nice meeting you last night at rva!! I was so excited that you and Elsie were both there. The shop is amazing and you are so adorable. I could of stayed all night and chatted about granny squares because I am addicted!! Your blanket is beautiful. I think you should go with the orange trim also.
Have a great weekend!! Hope to be able to visit again soon.
Xoxo

ohhhhhhhhhh it's gorgeous. my gut says gray, but orange would look pretty too!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ya'll aren't making this easy for me! :)

It seems split down the middle on orange or gray. I'll have to surprise you.

Thanks for all of the sweet comments. It's nice to have done a project that takes so long and feel the sense of accomplishment as it comes together. It's so much different than finishing a small quilt in a weekend. Character development, I think.

If you guys want a good post on how to make grannies...see this one from July on RVA's blog.

Oooh I say orange and grey! I think a grey straight lined border and then an orange shelled scallopy edge would look amazing! I love love love that green color.

Kristin! said...

Orange, for sure.

Joyce said...

I wonder if they have grey and orange and white varigated out there. If not I wonder if you could choose the right shades of both grey and orange and find that certain length that would bring them together, you might even bring in white to be the spacer between the grey and orange. Have you done two strands yet? Happy happies.

kinzielynmadsen said...

i'm thinking gray, but orange would be cute too.

Lexi said...

HAve to vote orange. It's my fav color, and 'tis the season for all things orange. Plus if I ever had a girl I swore I would use an orange/pink combo...
but I do like grey :)

hannah b. said...

Definitely *orange* :D Somone told me recently that babies can't really see color for the first few months, but once they can they will definitely appreciate it!

kristin garrett said...

I think the grey would look lovely.

Laurie Anne said...

Orange gets my vote! I love your granny squares {heart} :)
