This quilt just makes me happy. I have always loved this color even when it wasn't cool. We called it chartreuse then. But now it is called kiwi or lime or acid green. Whatever you call it, I always have a shirt in that color. This is a graduation gift and hopefully by the time… Continue reading All I Can Say is "Gleeeeee"!
I will be the first to admit this is a rush job but it turned out well nevertheless.
