Life is like ice cream. Enjoy it before it melts.
It's a finish!

I finished the top back in September 2020. I had a lot of fun figuring out what fabrics to use for the ice cream and the cones. I ended up with some rainbow sherbet, chocolate, chocolate chip and lots of other fun flavors.
On my DSM I quilted swirls in the ice cream and some diagonal lines in the cones. I changed colors of thread to match the ice cream and borders on the Happy Blocks. I used brown in the cones. The background fabric is kind of a peach color but I used a light pink that blended in. I think this may be the first time I used different colors of thread in a quilt.
The background is loops and swirls.
I made half a Snowball block for the ice cream and I used a Tri-Rec ruler to cut and make the cones.
I quilted squiggles (syrup drizzle) in the frame of the Happy Blocks and a swirl in the centers with the ice cream cones.
The back is some fabric with ice cream cones and sundaes that I've had in my stash for a very long time. I think I bought it back when Hancocks went out of business. Finally I found the perfect use for it! There was just enough with a little left over for the scrap pile.
That's finish #18 for September!
My OMG (One Monthly Goal) is to see how many quilts I can finish in September.
And on to the next!
(How many will I finish in September???? Maybe a few more?)
I vowed that there would be no piecing, cutting or squirrels allowed in the sewing room this month . I'm starting to experience withdrawal symptoms. Thank goodness the end of the month is near! 😅 6 days and counting!
Thanks to all who have been cheering me on!
