When I first got interested in quilting I went to a local fabric store to buy some fat quarters and I saw a quilt on the wall that really caught my eye! It was done in all black and white fabrics with big red ric-rac and called "Wrapping Paper". I duplicated the pattern (cut strips in various widths from 1"-3") and stitched it up. It's been done for quite some time (over a year or two) but I just quilted it last month. It was only a moment when I thought about machine binding vs. hand binding and decided on the latter. It really is fun for me to hand bind so I whipped that out this weekend and here it is. I'm not sure if this will be a gift quilt or we'll use it, but when I spread it out on the grass, the dogs liked it so it may already be claimed.
This quilt really shows how personal taste evolves. For my newer readers, I do NOT like green, yet in my earlier projects I used it a lot and it surprises me, even now. Is there a color you used to use but now you don't?
