In need of a colour fix, I made it right after I finished with the subtle tones of Sea Glass, digging into a pile of fabrics that I've been setting aside for a Fruit Salad quilt, and this was the result.
It's a great you to play with fabrics that you've been looking at out of the corner of your eye, or trying a new technique, and (in theory) you have a finished project much faster than it takes to finish a quilt.
Of course the fact that this pillow top has been sitting unfinished for a few months sort of blows that last piece of logic to bits, but finishing them quickly can be done :). I got stuck at what to use for backing, but if I really set my mind to it I'm thinking that there is something in my stash that will work. Ya think?!

In keeping with the garden theme they are all floral/organic prints. When all is said and done I think it's going to be greener than I had imagined, but that's okay - it's supposed to be a 'garden'.
p.s. Anne and a few friends were up bright and early this morning (now June 10) for the Edge of 17 - The Ottawa Valley Shop Hop. Between now and June 13, eight shops are waiting to stamp your passport for your chance to win the fabulous grand prize - an overnight getaway and a basket full of quilting goodies. If you're in the area and looking for something to do it looks like great fun; all of the participating shops are listed at the link above. Looking forward to seeing what she comes home with!

The Quilting Bee (I could live there). I was looking for a Creative Grid non-skid ruler for Anne and also found this little collection of fabrics for me. Niagara was beautiful and, as always, very tough to leave.
The cutting mat and rulers still on the kitchen table so maybe I'll finish up my cutting this weekend....M
