Fruitilicious Top Done!

Well this top came together really nicely and I had alot of time to sew yesterday as my girls took really long naps. Today has been a lazy day for all of us since we went to Disneyland last night and had a blast, so I was able to finish the top.

Fruitilicious Quilt Top


I made this Fruitilicious Quilt ( since I used apples in the quilt and then lemons for the borders) for my friend Lanay for her to use in her photography so we needed it to be really colorful and gender neutral so that is why I added the lemon print border instead of using the traditional white border. She wanted it crib size which is 34" x 52" but it turned out to be 34" x 59" so I need to decide if I should trim some off the bottom or add a strip of white on the outside of the stacked coins and then fix the border so it is wider or just leave it long??????

Decisions decisions.......

I vote to add the strips of white on the sides of the coins. Looks like it would complete it perfectly and give it symmetry. Another beautiful quilt!

It looks fantastic! I'd be tempted to add some white trips to the side. Love the name too. Ann :-)

That turned out great! It's really cute! I also have no comment about how to fix the size...looks good to me!

i think adding a white border to either side of the coin strips would be best. it still might not be exactly square, but it will be less of a skinny rectangle.

i love that lemon print. it's so bright!

I love this! I am so bad at mixing colors and design size. This is a perfect mix.

As for the size, I'd make some changes so that it will look less narrow both for the photography and as a crib quilt.How about taking some off the length, putting a smaller white border around the whole of that shorter piece, and using the leftover to make a matching pillow or two?

Your friend is lucky to have you!
