It started when my dear husband decided that we need to replace our shabby dishes with a new set and chose Fiesta Ware. I swear they are the first dishes I have ever owned that make me happy even when they are sitting dirty in the dishwasher. I love, love, love seeing all of the colors together.
Then I saw this quilt being used in an advertisement as a table cloth under Fiesta Ware and showed it to my beloved.
We could have purchased a kit to make it...complete with instructions....but my husband is an computer engineer and wanted to figure it out himself. So he made the pattern and I made the quilt.
The circles are all hand appliqued and the nine patches are pieced.
It took me about a month of steady work to get it finished...but in the end it was worth it.
It makes me smile just as much as the dirty dishes do!
