It's hard to move on when you have unfinished business. And since finishing the little lavender quilt made me feel so dang happy, I decided it was high time I finished another long forgotten quilt that's been waiting in the wings.
Back when I started this one, Miss Grace was about five I think. She'll be fifteen in another week, so let's see...that works out to about ten years of procrastination now doesn't it? (Why yes, I believe it does. Tsk-Tsk goodness gracious how time does fly! I might as well come clean here, there are others waiting to be finished too, but I'm trying not to think about that right now.)
Let's see as I recall, I worked very earnestly on these folksy Flower Pot appliques, an old traditional design that I found in a library book. I worked on this for a whole summer, but quit when I couldn't find the right shade of green for the sashing. Who knew there were so many WRONG shades of green? I suppose it makes more sense to have all the important details worked out ahead of time before jumping into a project this size. It just never occured to me that I would get stuck waiting to find a certain shade of green.
As luck would have it though, I finally found this green over the weekend in a local quilt shop. Maybe it's been out there awhile, I just didn't notice because it hasn't been on my radar until now. I love how it pulls these colors together. No excuse not to finish this now.
