Friday evening after I put the little one to bed, I determined to finish my Soda Pop QAL top. I have been wantin to make a rainbow colored quilt for quite a while and when this QAL came up I new it was time. Earlier this year I ordered a FQ set of micro dots from Connecting Threads, so along with some white Quilters Candy, also from CT, the vision of Rainbow Fizz came to mind. I have a hard time naming my quilts, but this time following the Flickr! group I knew that I had the perfect name.
When I first saw the pattern in the Fat Quarterly book, I never thought I could make this pattern. It actually was a lot of fun and a definate remake. Next time I will follow the pattern with the background being colorful and the petals all the same. I think cutting out the petals all the same will save a lot of time. Now I need to sew the petals down and the top will truely be done. It came out much larger then I had thought it would, almost a queen size.
Today for my b-day I woke up to roses, cards and breakfast.
Last night my b-day dinner was not what we had planned, but with a 2-year old things don't always go as planned. Even getting my present didn't go as planned. My camera is starting to get flaky and we found one at Costco that I really like. Same 2-year old "misplaced" my wallet so no Costco card. Hubby has a Sam's Club card so we tried there, but they don't have the same one. After church today we all will be hunting down my wallet.
