This happy little quilt is one I made back when my toe was broken and I couldn’t drive. My dear neighbor rescued me and bought the orange fabric.  You may remember I misplaced the fabric.  I still haven’t found it.  It is hiding so well in my sewing room. Once I was able to drive again, I got it basted.  It’s been sitting in a stack waiting to be quilted since.  Now that my shoes match, funny story about that in a moment.  I’m getting through the pile.  I did a simple stipple and it went very fast.  YEA!

Now let me share with you a funny thing that happened at the post office recently.  I was still in the protective shoe but able to drive.  While waiting in line at the post office a cute little three year old, behind me in line, asked her mom if I was unable to find my other shoe.  She figured that was why my shoes didn’t match.  Her mamma was embarrassed.  It just made me laugh. 

Yesterday I had a fun day with the Layton Quilt Guild teaching this quilt.  The ladies were delightful.  It was fun to see their sheep come together.  I took a video for my Instagram story but forgot to take pictures.  I hope they will share their finished quilts with me.

    Both the quilts are so cute – love the tie dyed sheep one! That is a funny story about the shoes!

    Love your quilt — could that be because I love orange??? Lol! Sorry you couldn't find matching shoes for your trip to the post office. Kids say the darnedest things, don't they? Hahahahaha!

    Oh my goodness – that little girls comment was priceless!! and your tie dyed sheep! Perfect!

    That sure IS a bright, happy quilt! And I think the shoe comment is hilarious. I don’t know why the mother was embarrassed. When my son Ryan was 3, he blurted out a question to us while waiting in line for Santa Claus. It had to do with a body part he was wondering if Santa had ….. now THAT was embarrassing!
