When I was young, I LOVED that saying. Whenever I was told I could do something I really wanted, I said, "Goody, goody gumdrops!" When I finished this quilt, I was reminded of those wonderful days. I was so excited about this quilt.
While in San Diego I picked up a Moda Turnovers pack of a fabric line called, 'Swanky' by Chez Moi. It was, of course, from that wonderful shop Rosie's (can't get enough of that shop). I also bought the white I used to set the blocks. I knew I wanted to do pinwheels that were a little different and used a pattern from one of the BOM's that I had done before.
The pinwheels are set on-point and bordered with more paisley fabric from the same line. The back is also a fabric from the same line that I got from a wonderful little shop I found on-line called Sew Fabulous. The backing reminds me of watermelon, and the colors on the front make me think of spring and the warmth of the sun.
I continued to practice my 'quilting with a pattern', and I think it turned out pretty good. I feel like my lines are getting smoother and my hands are getting more relaxed. I was really happy with how this one turned out. I even had some leftovers of the paisley fabric and the backing and thought about trying a hexagon pattern with it. One of the many projects that are in line and waiting their turn. :)
I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finished Friday! Have a great weekend!
