Blue is not my favorite color...but for some reason the latest 2 quilts I am making are blue! I am not sure how this occurred but somehow I am about to cross all the boundary lines in my quilt making. I am planning on spending a lot of time in Portland this fall...filling my grandma well. I am tired of missing all the grandson fun. Since I am a "Prim" kinda gal who loves Civil War fabrics in my home I decided to step out my box and for our digs in Portland. I dug through my stash and found a sweet pile of indigo fabrics. I started cutting and cutting and cutting...until my cutting arm was aching! I wanted to prep some quilt projects for the Fabric Stalker retreat in September.
...but as par for the Woolie brain...I decided I needed even more variety and so did some internet shopping with Shibori Dragon Fabrics They had a wonderful variety and were prompt in their service. I am excited about this project. I envision it being a very Zen quilt...king size Zen, lol.
Blue project number 2 is a wedding quilt. I saw this project at Sew Many Quilts and knew it would be perfect for a wedding quilt. The future bride and groom live in Hawaii...somehow it reminds me of the islands. Yes, I already cut it out and it's ready for retreat...I definitely have my mojo back!
Don't forget to leave a comment on the Give Away post if you are interested in winning Bonnie Sullivan's panel. We will be drawing on Tuesday the 27th.
