Le Petite...eleven down, one to go!

Amazingly I have just finished my eleventh Le Petite small quilt top. It has been another big year in Cardy world...some which I have shared here and some which has been kept quietly in my real world. That is the way life is, and sometimes when it has been super busy with family stuff, work and study it has been nice to have the goal to sew a little top each month. Some months that was all I achieved, but I am amazed to see all the tops, both quilted and unquilted waiting for homes. Most will be for baby gifts, some I may keep in case my children want them...who knows what is ahead (hopefully no imminent announcements as I am not ready for THAT yet!).
Here is "Fanfare"...a sweet little Schnibbles that seemed to suit Kate Spain's Central Park as I didn't want to cut the fabrics up too much and lose the medium/large motifs. A yellow background? Well it is spring here and I felt in need of a stronger background...I think it works...what do you think?
I am not sure what the last month will bring...I am so pleased I jumped in and appreciate the inspiration & coordination of Sherri & Sinta...and lastly, I recently received a parcel from Miss Rosie & Carrie themselves...two layer cakes and a fabulous felt kit just for participating...how generous & thoughtful!

I am loving yellow at the moment. It can't help but make a quilt look happy & sunny. Yours looks great. Nice fabrics. Tracee xx

Congratulations on eleven finishes! Wow!!!
The yellow background does look great!

Vivian said...

Eleven finishes is an impressive accomplishment. I like your yellow background. I used a similar yellow in a 1930s quilt I made and it makes me smile whenever I look at it. Perfect for spring.
