The Mermaid Quilt

This is the Mermaid Quilt.  Not a very imaginative name I know but I haven't been suitably inspired by any other name at the moment.  My quilt group made this over a number of meetings as a group effort.  It is so unlike what we usually make.  I love these colours but most of the group prefer a more subdued pallette.  Every time I saw the quilt I couldn't help but say how much I loved it.  Colour has a really physical effect on me and the colours in this quilt just make me so happy.   When we finish a quilt top as a group we either have it ear-marked as a charity give away or we "raffle" it amongst ourselves.  With this quilt we decided to raffle it amongsth oursleves as we have no charities "waiting" for quilts.  When the time came to Raffle it the other girls decided that although they liked the quilt none of them could live with it and they knew I loved it.  So they gave it to me and I LOVE IT.  I would rather have this one quilt that all the other quilts we have made put together.
It now hangs on the wall of my family room and I can see it all the time.  The photos do not do it justice. It just sings with colour!  I am going to have to repaint the table to compliement it though.......  needs a paint anyway....
