"Boxes of Colors"

The title for this cuddle quilt is inspired by the pointy elements as well as the multitude of colors that sparkle against the neutral hues.  I'm reminded of a new box of crayons. I've couched chenille yarn around the squares ...its soft, fuzzy texture brings to my mind the kind of line that is drawn with crayons.

And here's the other side...

I stayed with neutral hues on this pieced back. The center diamond is a printed panel. The fabric on the corners feature Elvis ...

I made this quilt for my and Lee's bed ... the Elvis' are for him. It's the cover that gets displayed at the foot of the bed until it's needed for an afternoon nap or extra warmth on a cold night.

I'm off to celebrate the holidays and won't be taking my laptop with me. I'll be back to post in the new year ... I promise.  Cheers!
