Marigold Trellis

I am terrible about naming quilts!  Sometimes I think that I would be better naming quilts just from their pattern.  This one I'd feel more comfortable naming 'Yellow Grid Pattern,' or 'Yellow Squares,' but that doesn't sound very pretty or interesting!

A lot of the flowers in the yellow fabrics remind me of sunny yellow marigolds, and the grey setting like a garden trellis, so I thought that 'Marigold Trellis' would be an interesting name (or not so interesting--after all, it's me naming it!)

Anyway, I do LOVE this quilt, no matter the name!

This quilt was made for a very special that I didn't even know about until yesterday!
When I get it totally finished, I'll post pictures and tell the story.

The fabrics for this quilt are a combination of fabrics from my stash and some from Joann's.  I found a couple of charm packs of the florals on clearance over there and I just fell in love with them.

I've been wanting to make a yellow and grey quilt forever, so I knew exactly what I was going to do with them when I found them. 

I actually had to square up the charm squares though...can you believe it??  

Aren't those floral squares pretty?  I do love these fabrics together.

It's fun to talk about my husband's opinions of my quilts, because they're so different from mine...ALWAYS.  He said that he could appreciate the 'squareness' of this quilt, but thought the fabrics were 'putrid.'

Hopefully he's the only one who thinks that!!  My three older daughters like it, so at least I'm not the only one that does!

The quilt measures 60 X 60 inches.

The perfect size to wrap up in!

I'm off to find a back and get to work quilting this beautiful quilt.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

And don't forget, it's Giveaway Day with SewMamaSew on Monday, and I'm really excited about my giveaway!  So be sure to stop by on Monday!
