My friend Kim gave me her signature block a week ago and
said, "I hope I'm not to late!"
Well, yeah, she was, BUT,
I was ONE block short and I had put in one unsigned block
that I had laying around! (The one my seam ripper is pointing to.)
I was so thrilled that she gave me her block. I LOVE the colors she put together!
We often have this talk about COLORS. Kim and I bonded because we have
special names for the colors we like to use.
Do you see that pale yellow green fabric she used in her borders of her block?
She calls it "URINE," while I go for something less distinct, "CAT PEE."
She says "PUKE" colored, I say "POND SCUM."
Can you see why we get along so well?
I actually have a quilt that is officially called "MIXED PAINT"
but I secretly and affectionately call it "POND SCUM"
It's the only way I can remember what quilt it is... ;-)
You can see a post that includes the quilt here.
See if you can tell which one it is!
Ever so carefully I replaced the block... Now the quilt feels COMPLETE! Thanks KIM!
Here it is! My gorgeous KING size
Brought to especially by,
you , you, you , you, you,you , you, you , you, and you!
THANK YOU TO ALL who contributed a block!
I'm still contemplating a wee border around.
But will let it sit and ferment for a bit before I decide that...
OK, While I have been putting this post together
I keep walking back and forth past my couch....
Every time I walk by, these two, are in different positions...
Exhibit #1: above:
Pillow squasher Jenny Egg on poor squashed Hexagon pillow.
Pillow squasher KIA on top of now crumpled couch cushion...
A few minutes later....KIA, has fallen behind the cushions....
...and yet, a few more minutes later,
JENNY EGG is now sitting on top of KIA.
Don't you love KIA's expression?
What do you think she is thinking?
