The Sunny Side

Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.

I've been stitching away at the binding to get this quilt FINISHED so I could enter it in the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  So here it is still warm from my hands and from the photo session.


The Sunny Side
72" x 89"


This is a Thimbleberries design called Sunny Side Up.  I decided to to just call mine The Sunny Side because I prefer to think of the attitude described in the quote above rather than eggs when I look at it.  LOL  I hope you enjoy looking at is also!





The top is all Thimbleberries fabrics.







Because the Background Fabric is a paisley print I decided to use a paisley panto-graph.  You can see it in the photo below but the fabric colors are not right in that photo.







I used some of the leftover fabrics to make the back a little more interesting.




The back is just lovely texture.  It will look even better after it is washed.

Thanks to AMY for giving quilters so much eye candy and a chance to share our work on Blogger's Quilt Festival.  Make sure you check out ALL the categories!
