Patricia is a very sweet lady at our church. I've been promising her a quilt for some time now, and it is finally finished!
The backing is this delicious bright pink! I used more of it for the binding.
Our friend Patricia likes bright colors and lots of them! I think she will really enjoy getting acquainted with this quilt.
After its trip through the washer and the dryer. Doesn't it just look so cuddly? It is!
The pattern is one I've made several times before. I make four patch units all the time. Some, like these I join into sixteen patch units. I used the Go! Cutter to cut half square triangles (die #55031 4 1/2 inch) out of Kaffe Fassett and Philip Jacobs fabrics. I alternated white-on-white backgrounds with beige tone-on-tone backgrounds. The sashing is a Kaffe Fasset print and the aqua cornerstones ( 2 1/2 inch square) are mirage fabric from Connecting Threads. The outer border is also a Kaffe Fassett print. I am very pleased at how this one finished!
Pretty flowers outside are in short supply. All the heat followed by lots of water, followed by more heat has just about done it for a lot of them. The chickens, however, are still having a wonderful time!
I lost a little bit too much weight, so I am trying to get at least some of it back. Ice cream always helps.
That look on Buddy's face when I tell him he's not getting any of it! LOL!
With all its trials and struggles, life is still good, and there are always so many things for which to be thankful! I do hope you're having a really good week!
Hugs and kisses,
