I had something like "Raspberry Sherbet" in mind for the pink quilt but sometimes quilts have a mind of their own. This one decided it didn't like raspberries and wanted to be a rose quilt instead. I doodled around a lot and wasn't really satisfied but thought I would just try to quilt what I had come up with - and I really like it! So I guess "Coming Up Roses" is what I will call this quilt.

After making three scrap quilts I didn't want to start piling up leftover fabric again, so I tried to use as much of the fat quarter pack as possible for the quilt. I remembered that Anke sometimes adds leftover blocks to the quilt backing. I never have too many blocks as I carefully plan every quilt I make, and I didn't have enough fabric to make more blocks. So I cut everything into squares , sewed them together in four rows and added these to the backing.

I added all the borders to the pink quilt top which is officially finished now. I already bought the batting in Wahlsdorf, just need to go out and get some thread. And, of course, figure out how to quilt it. I am thinking roses... but nothing specific yet.

It was a great concert, rather short by Bruce's standards (three hours, but again I think this was Berlin's fault rather than Bruce's, he probably wasn't allowed to perform later than 11 p.m.). He played lots of songs from his new album "Wrecking Ball" but also long-time favorites, and my favorite fast and loud Bruce song ever, "Badlands".
