A Toast





















As each year passes it's a very frightening thing to have to put on a bathing suit, the laws of gravity never lie!!

I made this quilt for a KY state guild challenge, I had such fun trying new techniques, the design was inspired by Barbara Lavallee , love her play on words and how she interprets them with her wonderful art. I did start with a pattern but then did my own thing, the theme of the challenge was "make me laugh"

this quilt has traveled the state of KY all year and I will be getting it back next week.

Now where do you hang something like this? I'm thinking of giving it to a very good friend, who has a hot tub hmmmm.....
Sew till later

I love it! It would certainly be appropriate to hang in a hot tub room.

Love, love, love this quilt!!! So hilarious. I don't "do" swimsuits anymore--it's that pesky gravity thing!!!

I remember that challenge. Now I see how great yours is, I want to do one.

Love it when a title and a quilt comes together so well.

I did laugh.

I really love this quilt! Would you share how you did the "under water" part? I have a swimmer and would love to do a quilt with part of her "uner water".
