Patio Stone

This is my project for the Where I Live Challenge. I ended up with C - D - I for letters and needing a bit more color choices than I could think of I looked up Wikipedia's List of Colors - Oh Wow there are colors for EVERYTHING! I really wanted to use Corn since I live in DeKalb, IL which has lots of corn around here. And I loved the name Drab and Denim and of course Dollar Bill even. Then for the I my heart was set on Inchworm which is a pale green. However, not having any soft greens to use for inchworm I settled on Indian Red, I went with Daffodil because then I got to use three shades of my yellows and then the C ended up with Chocolate because that gave me two fabrics in my stash one looking like milk/dark chocolate and other looking like white/milk/dark chocolate colors. I chose to make a patio stone with a bright flower on it. I have the most wonderful garden yard and it really is lovely, it has many bricks and patio stones and it does have daffodils it also had giant sunflowers at the end of the summer last year. And I like using the Indian Red because I think that by end of summer my garden is at it's peak and of course the tomatoes are ripe too! I kept the quilting simple with in the ditch with clear thread and I used a pillowcase finish for it which was my first time doing that and think I'll be using that technique again. Size ended up 10.5x10.5
