Sunshine is a Flimsy!

Presenting Sunshine! This quilt is for my great niece who LOVES YELLOW!

Here is Sunshine with all the rows joined.

The outer borders don't exactly tone this bright quilt down. The turquoise, one of my favorite colors,inner border does seem to contain or "tame" the brightness a bit.

Outer borders on! Not being a fan of yellow or a red which contains an almost orange hue, I am most happy to know this quilt will be moving to Texas.

Ms Cha Cha Cat says she is glad this one is off the design tablecloth. This quilt was hurting her delicate eyes! Perhaps that is why she tried to eat the pattern book the other day. She claims temporary insanity. Naughty Cat!

And, just so you can see the true BRIGHTNESS I took this flimsy outside. We still have only brown grass but the sun is beautiful today ....

I don't know if you can see them; however, there is a sprig of bright yellow wild flowers growing almost midway (closer to the left side) of the bottom border. This pattern is Stepping-Stones from Sue Abrey's Pick Four book.

The colours may not be to your taste, but it's turned out really well. Love the turquoise too

For someone who's favourite colour is not yellow, I think you've done a great job with this.
