When yellow was the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge I didn't have many yellow scraps so I combined them with orange and red to make some crumb blocks which then, when combined with some pink, turned into bow tie blocks and then the whole thing turned into a quilt top.
I decided to free motion quilt some five petaled flowers on my plain Jane DSM and when I got about 3/4 of the way finished I happened to notice I had horribly (and I mean horribly) bunched up the backing and quilted over it on about 1/4 of the quilt. It was a yucky mess so I threw it into a pile to linger which is where it's been since about June. Since it was a crumb quilt and going to be a donation quilt I didn't want to take the time to rip it all out. I thought the whole mess would probably stay a UFO forever.
Then I remembered I had a four hour car trip to and from my niece's wedding Labor Day weekend. So, the seam ripper and quilt went with me. It took the whole trip there and half the trip back - 6 hours of UNPICKING FLOWERS.
I'm not sure I ever want to do that again.
But anyway, now the quilt is finished (well, it's not really finished until it is washed) and I kind of like it even though I would never list pink, yellow or orange as a favorite color.
This quilt has a lot of fun built in...cats and gingerbread boys peeking at you...
And here's another kitty that wants to play and, look!....there's Spiderman again. Who would think he would show up in a predominately pink quilt?
This quilt will go to Wrap a Smile - quilts for kids undergoing cleft lip/cleft palate surgery.
