Yipes Stripes!!

I spent a few nights sewing down the binding on my Flutterby quilt all the while thinking how the green stripes (and the orange striped butterflies) reminded me of something from my childhood....anyone else remember...
I used to love that GUM.
Such yummy flavors!
Can you see the resemblance?
A little rainbow of fruity flavor.
I remember rolling up those gum sticks
before popping them in my mouth.
Even the wrappers were colorful and fun.
Been a carefree little trip down memory lane.
And I'm really happy to be finished with the binding.
I've designed a label, so all that's left is attaching it
and clipping some loose ends!
Thanks for stopping in!

We could never remember the name of that gum, but when the kids were little we found it in a gas station while traveling, so it became known as the traveling gas station gum, because it was the only place we would ever find it.

How funny - I thought of that gum the other day for another blog but couldn't think of the name of it. That was my favorite gum. Your quilt is beautiful!!!
