    Smile Just Finished Top Today

    Here, for your viewing enjoyment, is the top I finished this afternoon for a quilt I'm donating to a silent auction for the CISM group I belong to. The first one is as it was earlier, before I had chosen borders for it, the second, obviously, with the borders. Please ignore the jerry-rigged wall, I still haven't done anything more permanent. I made it with the 10-minute blocks, but cut my own and didn't use a Layer Cake. I found the fabrics at Hancock; some were in a pack of FQs and some FQs I found to go with the pack. The whole thing measures about 40x52. I had fun putting it together, but getting the blocks in the proper order was a challenge! I'm planning to just SID because I don't have the time to send it off and don't want it to get too expensive. I'm thinking of using a solid watermelon color for the backing. If anyone can think of a name for it, please let me know. Hope you like it.

    If I had a dollar for every time I got distracted I wish I had some ice cream.

    Love it! I think I need to learn to make those 10 minute blocks. The orange border is just perfect!

    You did a really nice job on it. It reminds me of citrus and bubblegum.

    This is one of those 'makes you smile' quilts. The borders sure brought it all together.
    Live and let live!

    As someone said previously "The Bubblegum Factory" is a good name. I love the green and then orange borders you added. Perfect.

    How cheerful and pretty! How about Bubbles & Beans? Those look like jelly beans in the red blocks...

    The others suggested were good, but this one struck me as "just right"! Thanks for the name and thanks to all of you for your lovely comments. They are really appreciated!
