I don't know where time flies to but it sure has passed me by. I noticed that it has been about 2-3 weeks since I posted anything.. geez! You would think I haven't been doing anything but lazing around, eating bon-bons and watching red-eye movies with a box of kleenex in my hand. You would be right!! ( yea, I wish... )
Actually, I have been busy busy busy trying to get the Judy Neimeier quilt I started about 2 years ago finished... it will be just beautiful when finally done, and I'm on the very last set of paper pieced sections.
ANYWAY -- do you have friends that entice you into doing things that you JUST DON"T NEED TO BE DOING !!?? Well, my friend tirane,, (very bad girl ) sent me an email with an idea for a quilt and DANG if I didn't jump in with both feet and say " I want to play too!!" ( silly me, why do I do things like this!! I have too many unfinished things now! (( can you hear me whine ?! )) ... do you also see the big grin, just like the cheshire cat )
Check out her blog,,, it shows you what she is doing and she also put up the fabrics that I have planned on using . Hers are all in blacks, very striking! Mine are more... I don't know,,, beiges and teals,,, the aqua is the zinger. and this is the focus fabric
it is so rich looking in person,,, the stripe in the grouping above is a companion piece for the line.
and this is my idea of the quilt Looks just like tirane's
( surprise surprise ) but different colors. it should finish out at 90 x 90..
thought about making smaller blocks ( these are 30 inch total ) and putting in more and making it 100 x 100.. that should fit the bed for sure!
I bet she has already cut her fabric and made the blocks - she is a sewing demon!
But, I'm going to lunch...
