Have you ever started working on a quilt and decided right from the start that you didn't like it?? I usually don't like to work with fabric that isn't appealing to me. But it does happen, right??
Several years ago I bought this fabric with reds, blues, pinks and yellow.
There was a complimentary fabric (which you can just see peeking at the left corner) that had a smaller print with cherries and raspberries.
I decided on the Card Trick pattern, and put the main fabric together with blue, yellow and dark pink. For some reason, this quilt just did not appeal to me at the time. So it was relegated to the UFO pile.
As I was working on cleaning up my sewing area one day, I came across this quilt once again. But this time it started to speak to me.
All of a sudden this quilt said "SUMMER"! So I brought it out to see what had been done. I hung it on the wall, and I decided that I liked it :-)
Now I must decide on a backing and how to quilt it. It is about 86" x 72".
Maybe I should go back through my UFO pile again and see what else is lurking in there :-D
