    because it's Tutti Fruitti, Oh Rudy.

    this is from our 2007 Blocks of the Month. i'm pleased with each of the blocks ... was more or less content with the top ...

    i didn't add nearly enough quilting, though. the batting shrank like crazy. the fabrics didn't shrink at all. sooooooo ... it's a puckered, puffy mess in person. the only way to flatten it the way i like them is to cut it apart, requilt, and then put it back together. not my idea of a good time. :lol:

    i guess that makes it a Finished UFO. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    It's really bright and beautiful! Shame about the puffy although I think it gives it a certain character. Wouldn't a bit more fmq round the outer border work? I guess it would pucker the binding.

    BTW - Whose Little Richard? :mrgreen:

    Too bad you got too much 'puffy'. It doesn't look that bad in the pic. The blocks are really nice and you did a good job with the setting.

    Very nice, Patrice. You brought the colors together so well.

    Did someone ask "who's Little Richard"? Hmm-guess we're showing our age. By the way, Little Richard is a little puffy these days so your puffiness goes further in paying tribute!! LOL

    I do love your quilt!
