Light


At the last Guild meeting, the word pulled out of the bag for the "Ardis Wannabes" was "Light".

About 1 year ago, I became stalled with this quilt, and being overwhelmed with my own brilliance (uh hem!) could not decide on ONE layout decision or border. Wanda of Exhuberant Color was so kind to keep encouraging me, but I came to a stop.
When the Ardis Wannabe word showed up as "Light" I KNEW what my project would be. We only require a finished project, not an entire quilt but ...

Wanda suggested limited quilting, but being stubborn, I quilted it a LOT! LOL - (yes, I drive my DH crazy with obstinance and resistance).

My binding changed color to perfectly match the various border backgrounds. 8-)))

(BTW, after my computer was returned from the hospital, EVERYTHING on this computer is visually so different! I'm having problems wading through all the 'new' windows, defaults, etc. )
