Free piecing

So I finished and sent on its way that four patch quilt and of course I'm making another kind of quilt. Because I have given away the quilt I made for a male-type sick person, I decided to make another quilt to have on hand in case there's a need for it. I think that solid fabrics might be more suitable than flowered or printed fabric. This quilt is going to be made with all solid scraps. And since my scrap baskets are overflowing with printed stuff--there's no question what I'll be using next. I'm feeling all energetic lately! Life sure has it's ups and downs. I even made it to the swimming pool today--wearing my new bathing suit. I'm so glad that they are still making modest grandma-type suits. I guess that it's been 50 years since I wore a two-piece type suit. This is my 499th post, so the next post will have a little bit of a surprise.

Roz - this looks gorgeous. Don't give it away. Keep it!

PS - meant to say we can now get those swim suits over here too. Mine makes me positively sylph like!

I love free piecing and especially with solids. These look great.

I love what I see in that photo!

I have only worn a two piece bathing suit twice in my entire life - once as a child, and once on my honeymoon (at my mother's insistence). I have always been a big girl so prefer to "hide" in a one piece!
