A new profession

If I had a dime for every water balloon I’ve filled up this week I’d be rich. RICH. Forget lemonade stands….water balloon stands are where its at.

(I just noticed this quilt is upside down!)
For those of you that asked and are waiting… I finished up the Bizzy Kid pattern. It’s only available in a PDF right now…and fyi…it’s a big file, 12 pages, and includes instructions for the kid size (48″ x 60″) or a twin size (60″ x 80″).
You can find the pattern here.
Also for those of you that asked, the solids in this are Kona Cottons in Chartreuse, Coral, School bus, and of course White. I have fabric ordered for a twin size version of this quilt for my son’s bed…a not so bright version. :)

    That is a great quilt Allison! There aren't that many patterns suitable for a boy room (in my opinion) but this is perfect.
