Friends are one of life's great blessings. Tuesday, when I was mourning the loss of a friend, a package arrived from a new friend with fabric so bright and sunny I had to smile. And I knew the timing was no coincidence. I set to work immediately, making blocks, with no pattern or specific idea in mind, just the comfort of working with such cheerful fabric. It was sort of like a vitamin shot for a quilter!
And this is what I ended up with. Thank you again Barb for helping me through this week.
Usually I wait to take pictures until after I've laundered a quilt as the quilting shows up so much better. But I haven't had a chance to do that yet and the weekend is going to get busy. I quilted some free motion flowers in the plain triangle areas.
And I tried a flange beside the binding for the first time. I think I should have made it even narrower, but all in all, I'm happy with my first attempt.
