Solids are nice

Three things to be happy about:
(1) a brand-new day
(2) bobbing a tea bag
(3) guiltless pleasure

My friend Zonia hadn't ever been to the Maryland Live! casino, so a couple days ago we hopped in the car and hustled right along.  Now here's the fun part:  she'd only been inside a casino once, and that was a very long time ago - I had to show her how to insert her card and where to put in the money.  She had beginner's luck almost right away!  I'm talking LUCK!!!   That's all I'm saying...  Zonia is a good solid friend, we've known each other for ... gosh, at least 30 years!   When she won we were both grinning.  After we finished playing, we ate lunch at their excellent buffet - yummy!!

I finished piecing the solid quilt, actually it was done in no time flat because the blocks are so large

it didn't take me long to figure out a border treatment, green is just fine

it only needs one border, I think; this one finishes at 40 x 44. 

I like the play of these solid colors against each other.  I had fun doing this one because I knew any two colors would work well next to each other in a single block.  No thoughts about scale or pattern, there's just something about solids!

I missed the WeeBee meeting last week, so I'll turn it in at the next meeting for my community service project.  I'll have it quilted between now and October 28, no worries.

So now we find ourselves at the end of another month, time flies whether you're having fun or not - have a great Friday!  Sew forth and sew on


  1. It turned out beautifully! A great charity quilt.

  2. Those solids all look super the way you arranged them. I had a chuckle over your friend's luck. When my first son was just a kid, we tried to discourage him from what might have been gambling. Trouble was, he always won, whatever the game.I have hours of funny stories over that kid.

  3. Love the solids...they are really versatile. Funny that I don't buy more of them!

  4. Woohoo Zonia! I love solids, in fact i keep planning solids quilts until i have to say "enough"!

  5. The solids look really good. You did a nice job coordinating the colors.

  6. I love how the solid quilt turned out! Beautiful, just something great about all those chunks of color.

  7. A soild friend and and soild quilt what can anyone else ask for. Love the quilt.

  8. That's really really cool! I love it in all it's simplicity! And such a wow punch of color. Someone's going to smile real big when they get this.

  9. What a great quilt! These colors are so cheerful, and I love the way the design works. Beautiful job.
