Sunny Side Up

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Well it’s done.  Somehow I managed to wait until the very last day to finish up my DQS 12 for my partner.

Here it is in all it’s glory:

Sunny Side Up
I must confess to breaking the rules. We weren’t supposed to use solid white. Somehow I missed that important tidbit until after I had made this block. Once I realized my mistake I went to look for the perfect shade of red and aqua at all the local fabric stores.

Do you know how hard it is to find the perfect shade of aqua?? Well it’s impossible. At least it is in west central Alabama and in middle Tennessee. So I chose the next best thing and used teal and red and came up with this:

Red and Teal flying Geese

I liked it but I didn’t love it. I also felt that it wasn’t quite what my partner would love. So it sat there for weeks and stared at me. Finally last week I decided to just go with the my first block and break the rules anyway.

I think my partner will be very happy!

Sometimes you need to break the rules. I used some white in mine, so two of us did it. Your partner will love this quilt.

that's really cool. I love the colors! I think the white makes the fun colors stand out and look bright and cheery. So in this case I think Good Choice!
