plates of sherbet quilt

I must first of all, say thank you, THANK YOU to all of you wonderful blogirls who gave me your tried-&-true methods in properly adhering circles! You are all soooooo helpful and I extend to you xoxo for being incredible & inspiring......as usual. And thanks to the beautiful blogirl at knotgarden for (unknowingly*grin*) giving me the idea to name this quilt --> Plates of Sherbet.
The colors are so sherbet-y, aren't they?

Vivid, smooth & vibrant. Just the way our daughter likes things.


And as much as I freeze (okay, feel faint) when thinking about adding the backing, batting and getting this thing quilted, I actually feel a huge surge of I-can't-wait-to-get-this-done!

Phew.

....it is a good thing I didn't have the 12 children that I first wanted when we got married. Imagine all of those birthday quilts needing to get done.

Oh my! That is bright and busy, lol! I would have ADORED it as a teen. Can't wait to see how you finish it off!

LOL, maybe it is a good thing you didn't have 12 kids; you'd never be doing anything BUT birthday quilts. *grin*

Hi Dawn! I have garden info for you but I don't know what state you live in, and tis different for different places. Email me if you would like to talk about gardening--or if you prefer, you can leave questions in the comments on my blog and I will answer them there. Either way is fine!

Happiness to you!
