DOUBLE DELIGHT


This was a long time coming but I finally got the top finished. The pattern was a mystery by Bonnie Hunter and was originally suppose to be in double pinks thus the title Double Delight along with all the squares in a square and double nine patches. However, mine has so much green in it I have decided to call it St. Patty's Double Delight. I have a lot of the fabric I used in this left, so I need to come up with another quilt to make. Open to suggestions!

Spring has definitely come to East Texas. It is suppose to be in the 80's this weekend. This is a good thing because there is a Renaissance Festival (www.fourwindsfaire.com) going on every weekend this month in a little town about 15 miles south of here. I mention this because 13 year old GD is performing there. She has been taking Belly Dancing lessons and the troupe will be performing at various times all month long. I had the task today of taking her scarf skirt apart and shortening it about 5". Of course she is using my favorite color, Purple, with lots of bangles over the black scarf skirt. I will try to get a picture of her in costume to post.

Tomorrow night will be a long one. GS, Senior at Michigan State, called last night and informed us he will be arriving sometime between midnight and 8 a.m. Friday morning with 3 buddies. They will be crashing here for a few hours on their way to Austin to see GD at the University of Texas before they head to Panama City, FL to finish up their Spring Break. Told him there would be pallets on the floor, front porch light on and door unlocked and I would see them in the morning for breakfast. This will be an experience for me having never had boys to feed. Hope I survive this.

Oh, I love this version of Bonnie's DD! The greens are so pretty! And I took a peek at the quilting Cornfield Quilter has done on it, and it looks wonderful - you'll have a favorite here, I think ;o)
