The quilt yard turned out exactly as I'd hoped except that the green background squares are a bit more pale then I wanted- not too pale, just more than I thought they would be (this is one of the reasons that they insist that you order samples before offering designs for sale- colors don't always show up the same as they do on a monitor). The yellow border fabric (also a yard) is great, and the little sample swatches of the blue, green, and pink are fine (I forgot to get a sample of the peach background fabric- I'll do that with my next order) (of course there will be a *next* order, did you ever doubt it?). I can't wait to quilt this.
This fabric shrinks 3%, so I am washing and drying it right now (along with the Dolly 'n Me apron yard, and the backing fabrics). I may sew this afternoon, or I may not. My Grandgirls will probably come over and we'll more than likely spend time in the pool. Sewing can wait- laughing children can't.
