    Its about time.

    I have been looking at, reading about and enjoying photos of your quilts for a long time. Guess its about time I showed you one of mine. This is for a friends grandchildren. Its my first D9P. I also gave Leah Day's video on FMQ a try. I think she calls this one string of pearls.
    What should have been the third pix (which may be in the middle and may be too large) is what is currently running around in my head. Some ideas on my design wall.
    After looking at this, I guess I need to work on the pix sizes LOL

    I really like your color sense! Lovely quilt, and the narrow stop border really sets off the center section.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I also love the colors and fabrics. Great job.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    All those bright, pretty colors just put a smile on my face! For some strange reason, they remind me of a glass of cold, freshly squeezed orange juice, in the morning!

    I just love your D9P. What size squares did you use to begin with?

    They were 6" squares. Seemed to work well for kid size.
