You Are My Sunshine

I was pretty stumped with the project for awhile. I had way too many song ideas but no enough time, money, or know how to try them out. (Someday, I am definitely making my "True Colors" idea into a reality.) I turned to my Facebook friends for some help. I got a lot of great song titles but really no inspiration. But three of my friends said, "You Are My Sunshine", which is kinda perfect.


My dear grandparents, whom I loved beyond words, loved this song. My grandpa would often sing it to his "sweetheart" my grandma. They were amazing people and loved each other dearly.


They taught me how a husband and wife should treat each other and how to love people even when they can be difficult. I got my love of music from them. My grandma gave me my love for quilting. I loved them dearly and miss them daily.


I used a multi-toned yellow, a sky blue with clouds, and a great music notes fabric. I even quilted their brand into the lower right hand corner. Finished size is 20 in square. Created in Webster City, Iowa, USA.
