OK, what's the best cliche? "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth," "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade," "Ugly as sin." We could go on and on. However--since someone gave me these fabrics--thanks. A good quilter should never let loud fabric go to waste. I know, you might think I ought to sew these fabrics on the back of the quilt. But I didn't. I look at it this way--this quilt is sure going to be cheerful! And you could always throw an afghan over on top of it, if need be. It's not a bedspread after all--it's a lap size. And it cheered me up no end to sew this quilt top, as I've been a bit under the weather. I'm getting tired of doctors, no matter how kind and understanding they are. And that from a person who has another appointment with another doctor next week. What a complainer I am! As my mother used to say "Oy, I'm sick in bed with the doctor!" At least all these problems are improving, I plan to be a lot better tomorrow. And to get to pin basting that other quilt top--the one that came out to be prettier than this one.
