I did a simple crosshatching on the border and added a red binding.
I never thought I would say this., but I am loving these bright colors. And it's the fault of all you bloggers and Pinterest!
I also started (and finished) a project from Lynette Anderson's It's Quilting Cats and Dogs book. I have gotten into making bags lately.
Isn't it cute? I have so many darker colored scraps, it was good to use up some of them.
Now on to the "start" portion. I am still hooked on making hexagons and can't stop making them. I'm not sure what I will make with these pastel colored flowers, but I'm thinking a baby quilt.
On to some personal news: Our oldest son, Justin, is getting married in two weeks! We are so excited! They are having an informal wedding at a park in Chicago, followed by a reception at the same location. They are having pies instead of a wedding cake. (Family tradition for us - no birthday cake, always pie.) And Justin has asked me to make some of the pies. I'm happy to make them, since they are doing everything else.
They are taking their honeymoon before the wedding. They are in Peru right now, hiking around Machu Pichu. (did I spell that right?) And right after the wedding they are moving to D.C. Justin got a teaching position at American University. Lots going on for those two and we couldn't be happier for them.
Have a great weekend, everyone. Here's hoping we all get some rain!
