Tropical Top Finished ... Not your usual baby quilt
Here's a stack of some of those fabrics. I folded them when I thought I was finished with each. It's possible I missed one or two. The center medallion is made from these tropical ferns on the right. There aren't really any browns in this stack. My colors look a little muddy in these photos.
I flipped through some old magazines and found this pattern in Quick Quilts from August 2008. It's called Garden Party.
No tree service today. Bummer. I thought this would be the time they'd really show up. So I guess we'll hire a different tree service to finish the work that these guys started. I'd hoped the first group would want the remainder of their payment and also want to preserve their reputation.
I cleaned lots of drywall dust this morning, chatted with the builders and the termite inspector, then went home for the 2nd shower of the day by 10:30 am. Treated myself to a library trip and a milkshake, then worked on this top for a few hours. Now it's time to get ready for my hot, tired and ravenously hungry band campers. We have a spare trumpet player this week, so we're enjoying more stories, giggles and laundry. I like to hear their conversation about all the funny things that happens with their friends, who stomped on who's foot, which upperclassman has adopted a freshman, etc.
Enjoy your day!
