    50th Anniversary Quilt

    My DSIL and DBIL celebrated their 50th Anniv. this past Saturday. This is one of my go to patterns when I need something quick. The 4 hr Carpenters square. It is hard to see in the pictures but the gold has a metallic shine to the swirly pattern in it and the blue green(like a soft robin egg blue) has a metallic pattern in gold in it. The pictures do not do the colors justice. Hope you like it. Goes in the mail today.

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Beautiful. If you don't mind me asking, how large are your individual HST's. I love it.
