Finished Happy quilt top   Show and Tell

Started Sep-10 by Dee in TX (DBRADFOR3); 854 views.

The pattern is called Wild Side, got it from a Fons & Porter magazine YEARS and YEARS ago.  That version used only purple triangles and didn't turn out that well (despite how much I love purple).  I like this version much better.  It feels like a bowl of jelly beans; bright, happy and sweet.

That is so beautifully done, Dee.

I  like that.  Jelly beans is a great description!

I love the usend of the solids mixed in.

me too.  Downside, I'm realizing how limited my non-novelty fabrics are.  I need to go shopping.  relaxed I've used up several of the bright colors - I need some red, blue & green.  Judy K will laugh about the green, she took me shopping for greens when I visited her years and years ago.  And I'm still looking for green.

August, 2011 wasn't THAT long ago. Look at what a gracious hostess I was – offering her a choice of Raisinets.

Dee, you could go online shopping at the Fat Quarter Shop and pick up a bundle of greens with just a click or two.

true, it can't be that long ago.  I still have that shirt and my hair still looks like that.  OF course I will likely be able to say that in 10 years from now....

And I still wear those earrings. Some polymer clay artist I am that I wear earrings that I bought decades ago at a big box store.  Do you know what the current trend in polymer clay earrings is?  Making "ear art" that doesn't match.

Here's an example of earrings made by a Spanish artist who would be right at home in Dee's quilting room:

oooh, those are fun.  Though I'd injure myself with something that hung down that low.

Same here.

I do not understand why these young artists make earrings for people with Audrey Hepburn necks ....
