FOR THE LOVE OF BROWN


I admit it, I love brown! I love it with red. I love it with blue. I love it by itself. I thought I'd share a small quilt top I pieced the other day all in different brown fabrics. Some are homespun, some are prints. I used several of my favorites. I'll be hand quilting this little quilt and offering it on my picturetrail in a couple of weeks.

Oh so BEEEE-U-TEE-FULL! I love brown... it's the color of chocolate, coffee and dirt! LOL! :-) Always a cozy, earthy feel to it!

That is one beautiful quilt, Lori! I love the perimeter fabric - so antique-y looking!

Welcome to the world of blogging.

I also like brown, in my last house I painted my livingroom walls brown and then used different shades from that hue for the other rooms.

Love your Prims.
