Feeling the Purple

from start
to finish










{Art Gallery Lace Elements,Lizzy Dish By Lizzy House, So St. Croix By Jennifer Paganelli, Plume By Tula Pink and Kona Pomegranate

Two quick blocks and the colors played well together I think.  The Kona Pomegranate really ties it all in for me:)  I have so much Tula Pink--it keeps showing up everywhere lately.  Fine by me!  This was my first runner and she will be for sale this Saturday at my booth at the craft fair downtown Fayetteville,NC.

I did some FMQ in wavy lines going up and down around the outside border Art Gallery print.  Some squiggles in the middle and I outlined the stars.  I used King Tut variegated thread which was very pleasing to the eye.

For a very long time now I have wanted to make some for my home.  Definitely a must.

 Why am I showing you ziploc bags suddenly?

These are each filled with a different color being: red,orange,yellow,green,blue and purple.  The Roy G Biv color wheel requested by a new client last week.  Here is the quilt I will be duplicating.  It is mine from my shop.   She would like it as a 40x60 wall quilt.  On it!  She also requested a white backing---not a problem;)  Lately I could stand to get away from a pieced backing you know!  Well anyway, I have a month to get her finished.

A little detail I will add, the client said her kids had 20 quilts to choose from and they chose mine hands down she said!!  Humbling indeed.  My heart is filled. Again.  With quilting.

It can't get any better right?


Maybe it can..........................................................





Anna Marie Horner snuck into my mailbox recently.               

Maybe not her.  in the flesh.  You know what I mean!

Innocent Crush made an appearance though.

I swapped.  Felt good.  Very good!  The recipient got some KJR in return for her generosity;)

She gave me some scraps too!  Hope Valley by DS.  Nice.  Real Nice.

Before I play with the above, I have to get ready for the craft fair Saturday.  Silly me!  Setting up a mock display of my booth tomorrow.  I also have a tablecloth to make!  Occupied for certain:)
