Blooming Rainbows!

First and foremost…thank you all for the wonderful welcome! I cannot believe how many visitors have stopped in to say hello. I apologize for not personally responding to each comment, but be assured they all make me smile!

To go along with my clever title, I had planned on posting some pictures of my flower jungle garden. But mother nature has decided to turn on the sprinkler over said garden, so I am just including the rainbow part. I drove home from work so fast, picked up my boys, trying to get home before the big storm. It started pouring just as I pulled into the garage. I got soaked running out to rescue some potted plants I haven’t put in the ground yet from the wind.

LynCC’s (whatahootquilts.blogspot.com) rainbow Jane quilt inspired me to share my own rainbow.

I made this quilt a few years ago when we lived in Portland for a short time. I wanted to try a bargello, but decided to spiff it up a bit with the flying geese. No, it’s not crooked. I put the borders on that way to add even more spiffiness. It now hangs above my bed. I am blessed with very tall ceilings perfect for hanging even large quilts. (having a large black pup who naps on my bed keeps me from having a nice quilt actually on the bed)
Check out LynCC’s rainbow Jane blocks. It is such a creative take on that pattern. And quite an undertaking!

It’s a great day.


something to make you laugh: walking out to the car after school, my three-year-old suddenly said, “I smell frozen poop”

    “Frozen poop”?! lolol You’re so sweet to mention my Jane project, Sharon. *LOVE* your rainbow bargello, most particularly the flying geese you added in. I hadn’t seen one like that before.

    This is a beautiful quilt. I really like the way it sits inside its borders. How lucky you are to have a big wall to hang it.

  5. I’m so glad someone else has a crazy life like mine. The flying geese really add some pizzaz to your quilt….lovely.

    So glad I’m not smelling frozen poop here….but that is not to say it wouldn’t happen.
