What was I thinking??
These pictures are for the benefit of those who asked to see the whole quilt and also to serve myself a thick slice of humble pie (lest your generous response to my desperate blegs for votes goes to my head. Thank you!) I'm not sure what HCG did to my ability to perceive color or judge coordination all those years ago, but pink and orange? Purple and orange? Suzanne, no.
No, it just doesn't work.
And if the colors don't disturb you enough, add to this that the binding fabric I chose has little baby chickens all over it. AND, doesn't that mother duck's neck look a bit long...maybe more like a goose??
Ah well, gets the kid thinking, right? What is the difference between chicks and ducklings? Why does this orange look so bad next to this pink? Is that a duck in the middle or a goose? These are all good questions.
The point is, it was made with love and Simeon loves it and all the boys want quilts now, too. They've been playing a game on it they call "Duck, Duck, Chickens, Goose."
Good fun. Good fun.
