mellow yellow lemons

i started this quilt while david was in bootcamp
and finished it just before christmas.
it's so not my style at all, but i'm in love nevertheless. the fabrics are a mix of vintage sheets from the thrift store, to traditional quilt store fabrics to alexander henry. i love the mix. it's a pretty huge quilt and of course i had to bind it in polka dots.


*sorry for the lousy pictures.*
