Happy, Happy, Happy!

After my post (last night) of feeling
like a failure with the green charm quilt,
I relaxed in my big easy chair
and finished reading a book.
All the while,
the green charms were moving around in my head. annoying that I couldn't just let it be!
I finally decided to go online and look at different blogs
and on flickr to see if anything inspired me.
Keeping in mind, of course, that the fabric was
already cut into 4 1/2 inch squares.

What do you know...looked on Erin's blog
and was totally inspired!
Go here to check out her rockin' small squares quilt.
Thank you, Erin!

Totally motivated, I stayed up until 2 a.m.
cutting the solid fabric into squares and strips
(Kona cotton solid = Bone...a lovely color/fabric!)
and sewing all the squares together.
I left the ironing and sewing of the strips until this a.m.  
I am happy.

Jacque, I just love the colors you have chosen for the quilt. It would match my bedroom perfectly, if you need someone to take it off your hands....when it's finished of course.
