An Oldie But Goodie

Well Peg's Challenge has really made me dig in the closet and try to finish some of the tops that have been "resting" there for a while. This is one of those. I finished piecing it long ago, but was never very thrilled with it if you know what I mean. I bought the Thimbleberries fabric called Daisy Days simply because since everyone else loved Thimbleberries so much, shouldn't I? Well here is the result. While the fabric is beautiful, it really isn't my taste. My son really likes it now that it is finished however, so this will go into the pile belonging to him. Hopefully someday he will have a lovely home with some of mom's quilts to decorate with.

I am glad to have it complete, and have since learned the valuable lesson to buy the fabric I like, not what everyone else likes!

This makes finish number 7 in Peg's Challenge. Hooray for me!

Have a great day.
