Ta da... ta done!

I am finished with my Crazy Mom QAL that also qualifies for Patchwork Times monochromatic quilt challenge since it is yellow. Lots of yellows!



Three hundred and sixty two different yellows - no repeats. There are novelty fabrics



not only chickens but



a sock monkey too! And there are tone-on-tones and dots - lots of dots. My 25 years of collecting yellows has served me well. This is a BIG quilt - it is 96" square - yikes! (that's why I took the picture outside so I could get far enough back to get it all in the picture)I know I wanted it to be a generous size but I may have gotten carried away. I will be taking this to my long arm quilter next Monday night at guild meeting. I'm envisioning an all over floral pattern done in a variegated yellow thread. I know she'll be using cotton batting, probably Mountain Mist White Rose and it washes up wonderfully. Nice and squishy and you get great texture. I can't wait to see her work her magic.

Happy stitching-
