Hi quilters!  This is quilt number two of my "ten quilts by December" challenge and I loved working with these colors! Peach is a color I rarely use and now I wonder why?  It's kind of delicious looking. I kept thinking about ice cream and cobbler and all things that are sweet and creamy the whole time I worked on it.  I have the same reaction to Christmas fabrics but there's more Allspice involved..lol.. Anyway, my co-worker has a 1930's theme for her nursery so who better to show up for that than Sun Bonnet Sue?  I know she's older than 1930 but she fits well for a baby girl.  I included Umbrella Girl because she wears a bonnet.  I've completed quilt number three as well and will post it later.  I seriously LOVE my super cool excuse to quilt all the time.  I keep saying to DH " Aren't you proud of my stick-to-it-ness regarding my self challenge? Don't you just love what a good mood it puts me in?" blah, blah, blah.. lol.....he buys it and I get away with a little extra me time.  Until next time, happy quilting everyone!

I like the quilt and I also like the way you ask if he is not proud of you. What a great technique.
