I finished putting the borders on my Red Velvet quilt - a wonderful Thimbleblossoms pattern that went together beautifully and easily. People at my retreat were just raving about the French General Rouenneries fabrics, and I love how the aqua fabric from Simple Abundance adds so much whimsy to those serious prints.
I made a decision at retreat to come home and send 2 quilt tops off to be machine quilted. I have put it off for months, but I have a little extra pocket money and now the decision is - which 2? My brilliant friend Rani suggested sending my Indian Orange Peel quilt (click on my quilt album on the sidebar to the right and you can see a picture) - a quilt I had completely forgotten about! I seriously love her for reminding me. I have been waiting to find a quilter I trusted enough to quilt my "masterpiece" - that quilt took me 7 years to finish - and now that I have someone, I simply must send my quilt. Like, RIGHT THIS MINUTE!
