Do you remember this? I liked it so much I made 40 of these pastel ones. But they've been haunting my sewing room for a loooong time. After I made them, I laid them out on my living room floor, decided I didn't really like them (too busy? too sweet? too something? I don't know), stacked them up again and put them away.
So now as I wade though my seemingly endless number of unfinished sewing projects - that I bothered to pack up and move - and try to decide which ones are worth doing and which ones are no longer calling my name, this one bubbled to the top of my "I really want to make you" list.
Once the top was all pieced together, I fell in love with this quilt. Hard. And then I did that other thing we crafters sometimes do and wondered why in the world I didn't think of this idea before and why did it take me so long to finish?! LOL! Oh it is so pretty and soft and lovely. The taupe calms down the super busy flowers and cuts the sweetness to just the right amount. I'll show you the whole thing when I have it quilted and bound.
