    Kaleidoscopic Kites Fresh Lemons pattern

    Another member posted a quilt from this pattern that was so lovely I looked it up. It was perfect for a beginner. I used my leftovers from the blocks to make the binding.
    I practised my FMQ on a domestic machine. It is still not of a quality that I will share a close up, but I learned a lot!
    I did substitute purple and lavendar for the blocks that were to have been brown and light brown. I always prefer the bright colors. It has gotten me into a mess on some of my own efforts at blocks, but this pattern kept it bright, and kept me from going off the rails.

    When I am perfect, I will write a book and everyone can be perfect too. Until then I will just have to be gracious in face of imperfection, and ask the same of everyone else for my imperfections.

    Like it a lot....you did a really good job and I also like the purple/lavender instead of browns...

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
