Sew & Tell Friday

I have sat back and watch my online friend Heather do this Sew and Tell Friday that she discovered at Amylouwho's and figured since now I have started taking half a day off on Fridays that I would jump in when I could too. :)

I actually got to sew today on this:

It is actually a lap quilt for Batiks by Design as a sample for her shop. Patti, the owner, and I have been emailing and sending fabric back and forth to each other since October of last year trying to get the right colors for this. We finally settled on these but we had picked out a dark green with some tan batik for the border but then decided after i got some of this all up on the sheet over the closet doors, aka design wall, that the green would blend in with the arches, so we went on a search again. LOL We came up with a tan that will be gorgeous and the green we are going to use as fluers appliqued on the border. I cannot wait to get it done!!!

I have a granddaughter due in April and I have yet to make her a quilt!!! Tomorrow will be spent on just that instead of this quilt above. :)

Thanks for checking out my Sew & Tell Friday. I hope to be back next Friday with more.
