Sunny Days - Top is finished

The circles didn't take as long as I thought. I finished 7 of them last night and after visiting with Steph and AJ this morning, I came home and did the last 5. The first picture is from the bottom -- I laid it on our queen size bed. The second picture is from the left side showing the top circles.

I'm real pleased with it -- hope Briana loves it. I need to see what I have for a backing -- might have to go shopping for one if I can't find something appropriate. I'd like to start quilting it in another week or so.

Time to start on the next one! I'm waiting to see what Judy is going to come up with for the October 1 hour quilt, too.

Gratitudes:
1. Seeing Steph and AJ today. AJ changes every time we see him now.
2. Running into Deb at the mall while AJ was riding on one of the truck rides.
3. Stopping at the Farmers Market today -- farm fresh green beans and decorative gourds.

I've watched those applique blocks being posted over the past wee while and wondered what they'd turn into - what a lovely quilt - the bright coloured appliques take the edge off the sugary pink and the pink calms the brights - inspired, I'm sure she'll love it
