    back when i originally posted asking for opinions on this quilt was because i didn't think i had enough orange to go around each block. many of the ideas were to limit the yellow to cornerstones... funny enough, that was DS's opinion when i started showing him different options.

    i went back to the drawing board and found that i had JUST ENOUGH orange. DS laughed at me and said, "that's what i told you to do from the beginning." lol

    well, after a lot of love from my seam ripper, here we are!
    bob has been pieced.

    now, i have to decide how i will quilt it and what thread color i will use!!
    oh, decisions, decisions... but i'm so happy i've gotten this far!

    Sometimes they are right! The orange and yellow are perfect. It will be darling when it's all done.

    Love it! Better, even, than the yellow sashing - the orange and yellow work really well together!
    I love the smell of Best Press in the morning!

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
