mahvelous!

i went looking for dinosaurs when corbadoo was still in his mommy's tummy ... i found marbles, instead ... and (since i have lost all of mine) i decided to use the marbles as the focus fabric for a children's delight quilt ... the orange corners and the binding are scraps from the same fabrics that i used for his daddy's beep beep quilt...
...the backing is soft blue flannel...
the quilting is mostly stitch-in-the-ditch ... i quilted phases of the moon in the top border and sun rays in the bottom border ... i didn't have a quilting frame at the time, so this was pin-basted on the floor ... now my knees are too cranky for that nonsense ... anywho, this quilt is named simply marble-ous
