Koi Pond Quilt Top

Well, I've been a bit under the weather the last few days with the flu, yesterday I decided I felt good enough to quilt. I decided to work on something completely new and different. I didn't have a complete plan for this quilt, just and idea swimming in my head. So I just went for it and had fun.

 These aren't the greatest pictures, but it's a fairly large (approx. 58" x 78") quilt to put up on my design wall. I had so much fun just attaching borders with abandon and adding in little areas of bling.  I have some fun ideas for the navy center, which I'm sure you can guest from my title. I'm going to try to machine embroider koi as part of the quilting. I know you can do it, the question is can "I" do it. Hmm, we shall see.
Since I finished this quilt top today, I think I will link up to TGIFF at Sparrow In Flight and Finish Friday at Richard and Tanya Quilts. 

Color Me Quilty!



  1. I love it when play turns into a nice product! You have just the right amount of red and orange; I especially like the color accent in the black (or navy?) border. To my eye it is good as is; but I am sure it will be nice with embroidery. Good luck.

  2. I really love this Pat!! And yes you can. Sorry you haven't been feeling well and hope you will be recovered soon :-)
