They don't call me Bloom for no reason!

I am expecting visitors for the weekend & tomorrow I am playing parent-helper on a school excursion to the zoo. So I am SUPPOSED to be cleaning the house today. But as so often happens, I am avoiding the mundane & have become distracted by blooms! I came across this treasure at the Michael Miller site.
'Flower Shower Brite', free pattern here
I LOVE this quilt! It is made from a new Michael Miller range called 'Jewel Tones'. You may remember the gorgeous 'Birds of Norway' print that Janelle sent me recently?
Kathy Miller at Making It Fun explains in this post, that the colours used in 'Birds of Norway' worked so well, that it inspired the whole new 'Jewel Tone' range. 
These fabric manufacturers are killing me! Can't they just release some dead ugly fabrics for a while & give my addiction a break?!

    You had me laughing when I read the bit about "can't they just release some dead ugly fabrics for awhile and give my addiction a break?" Oh, I feel your pain!
