Sunny Days

My friend Rae Ann knows me too well.
The little gift she gave me will now become a new life motto.

Judi has finished putting the borders on her Valentine quilt. She wins the prize this week for most quilts completed. She has finished 3 quilts AND the backs

Rae Ann finished all of her February and March Star Crazy BOM's.

I've got a start on "Sunny Days" by Geoff's Mom patterns
I've had a lot of fun picking out fabrics. I will need 30 colors in all.
The original design (above).
Joyce Weeks is the designer and she used Aunt Gracie's.

I'm using more bright and funky.
The fabrics need to read as a solid from a distance, but up close they can have a pattern. I love this toad stool fabric.

And you know I have a thing for pomegranates. (Farmers Market by Sandi Henderson)
