I don't know about you, but regardless of how prepared I am, I cannot make anything in a day. I tried.............I just cannot do it.
I did my quilt in the colours I liked at the time. I wouldn't choose these again. Dusty rose did work at the time, but if I did it again, I would definitely pick a few greens. My tastes have changed over the years be it good or bad.
It never ended up being an quilt. I put a muslin back on it and it was our duvet cover. The duvet is long gone, but the cover lives on. I have been thinking seriously of taking the back off, getting a backing and having Kathy quilt it. I could then give it away to one of the granddaughters.
I remember having trouble with what to embroider in the blocks. Everyone was using a shamrock but never having seen a pink shamrock I dropped that idea very quickly. As I pondered my problem, my daughter suggested a rose and that's what I did. Made me think of the song "My Wild Irish Rose"...............
Excuse the wrinkles. As it is going back up on the shelf for awhile, I really didn't see the sense in giving it a good press for a couple of photos. Call me lazy.................that's okay.
Tomorrow...............ah, a fabulous book review. Tour of Ireland by Pat Sloan. I don't own it, but our guild library does and this time, I'm making the wallhanging that is in it.
