With the official end of summer just two weeks away, I though a nice quilt to finish off the season was in order. I needed something quick to cheer me up!
With the kids settled in at school, acclimating to their new schedules, I'd become very melancholy–I miss them during the day, I miss the activity in the house (mostly in the kitchen) and by the pool. The place becomes very quiet and big. I just know I'll be the worst empty nester ever!
Back to the quilt, I must admit I am a fat quarter junky. . .really, I am! I love them and there is nothing quite like them. So, to ease my "I miss my kids' blues," I gathered a few of them together, found 2 yards of beautiful floral fabric deep in the confines of my stash, this pattern from this pattern company and. . .Voila! It took just an afternoon to finish the top. Instant gratification.
