Kick in the Seat of the Pants
Well, that's what I named this quilt. This was my first venture into lime green. Jane had used lime in a quilt and I saw it and it 'influenced' me! LOL! I auditioned a lot of colors for the border, and liked the green the best. I guess I was feeling frisky this day!
Another BOM that I signed up for in the very beginning. I made every block the day they came in the mail! (Sure don't do that any more!) I learned a lot from this quilt. I didn't really understand the dark, medium, light thing until this one. It was really apparent with black and white fabric. Again, not a great quilt, but at that point every one I did was a learning experience.
I need to dig this one out and take a picture of it quilted. But on the other hand, since I quilted it myself - another adventure - maybe I'll not get a picture of that! I stitched in the ditch around every single piece in the quilt, and then did a double cable in the border. Actually, it's not as bad as I'm making out, but things sure have improved in the quilting department! Finished in Dec. 2002.
And Daisy was such a big help while I was on the floor crawling around and assembling!
We've got a storm brewing off the Coast, so we're in for some rain tonight and tomorrow. I'm not complaining since we're going to have a long and dry summer, but it sure does make traffic even worse out here.
Daisy Dog is feeling much better tonight. I guess the popcorn did the trick!
I can't believe it's almost April. Time sure flies when you're having fun! My gratitude today is just being able to have fun!
