Charley's Quilt.

This is a little quilt for a new(ish) baby girl named Charley. Working with different palettes is kind of difficult for me, I am a huge in-rut-sticker as far as color is concerned. Anyway, the original idea was pale pink and yellow, but I seem incapable of making a quilt without some gray in it. Oh, well, I think it turns out well, it started out bigger, but then The Beloved Viking and I had a falling out concerning thread tension, and we had to whack a bit off the sides. I do love the crumplies, though!

Such lovely colours, and not too babyish either - a quilt to use for a long long time.

I still haven't tried your 'method' of quilting but each time you post photos of a finished quilt I'm compelled by it - very original.
