Look forward to seeing the finished project. It is a bright quilt. Not sure I would call it gaudy. I know what you mean about your shoulder. Mine clicks as I do my exercises for PT. We are leaving tomorrow for a month long road trip so PT has given me an exercise regime to continue. I agree that taking a break is a good thing. I have trouble with marathon piecing or quilting sessions.Enjoy your break. Raisinettes is certainly an incentive. They come in dark chocolate now so you can think of them as "healthy".

How could they not? Fruit + dark chocolate = health food.
Didn't need the Raisinettes. Neighbors had gone on a bus trip to Mackinac Island and brought us some famous northern Michigan fudge as a souvenir. That got my blood circulating so I was able to get the job done today!
Misty the Kitty inspected. She looks puny because she is gonna be nineteen years old in October and she is definitely feeling elderly. However, she likes resting on a quilt while we watch DVDs in the evening.
Here's an example of how I loosely quilted around the flowers in the backing print. I preferred to do that rather than try to follow lines in the front of the quilt. I would circle around the center of a posey and then create "petals" around the center. It was crazy-making to ignore the exact petals as I was creating my own blossom.
These orangey-reds are pretty much the true colors of the front of the quilt. The outside greens and whites are accurate and so is the blue of the pillow on the couch so you can trust your eyes when you see my finished "Hot to Trot" quilt. Kaffe Fassett was a bit of a fast-talking salesman when he called this pattern his "Red Ribbons" kit.
wonderful! really like the attic windows...gotta try one of those some day...
I like this just a whole lot. Fabulous quilting as well. Well done!
It's gorgeous, Judy! As is Misty Kitty.

We all need a pop of color in our lives and you quilt puts color in yours.
I like the artist license you took with the quilting.
Thank you, Jo. When my DSIL next visits my home and inspects my quilts she will surely make a comment about my unique quilting on this latest creation.
I will use your words – artist license – and give her another dose of the evil eye.
(This is my DSIL who always makes her quilts exactly how they look in the photo in the pattern or the book.)
A truly beautiful work of art, Judy. I bet your eyes needed a bit of rest after looking at all that brightness! It will surely perk up those rainy fall days to come.
She makes the pattern exactly? Geeze, I just think of them as suggestions.
