Just finished another rosette in blues for my Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt. Working on the orange rosette which I should finish by weekend. The orange one is just layed out in the picture below, not sewn together, just to see how such a bright color will look next to the cute pastel rosettes. Should be fine, in my opinion. I want a little brightness in this quilt. Love the green I chose. It was the most difficult selection because I wanted to use a solid and Moda has a huge collection of solid green. (Funny story: I ordered half yard cuts of five Moda (Bella) solid greens online. When the package arrived, none of the greens were labeled as to which green it was. I had to send a swatch back to the company to order my yardage!)
I need to get shopping this weekend. I joined a red and white swap over at 'Sew Many Ways". There are 125 swappers swapping 5 inch squares of just red and white prints. I need to buy yardage to cut my squares. Deadline is June 15th. I tried to order some fabric from Hancock but at 10.00 a yard for 4 yards and 8.00 shipping, I could not justify that. So, I will be going to the fabric store this weekend, which also gives me an excuse to drop off my recently acquired Bernina 1031 sewing machine for a check up.
I won the bid on ebay for this little beauty of a sewing machine and the price was right plus this seller did an excellant job of packing. That baby wasn't going anywhere but to me!
I am a Pastor's wife of 38 years; mother of two grown and married children, quilting for over 40 years, Longarm quilter for 14 years, domestic sewing machine collector (don't ask me how many sewing machines I have!) I love woodworking (building cabinets and bookcases), I like to read mysteries and watch "chick" flicks. I love all types of music except Blue Grass, but my favorites are Contemporary Christian and oldies-Rock'n Roll.
