Ive been quilting like crazy to get ready for this show tomorrow night.

Well, I think this quilt is going to be the last one that i get done in time for the gallery to get it hung.

Here are some bad light pics -









I like it - the purple is corduroy - the chartreuse is a linen blend - I used double threads of sapphire thread to FMQ with - I wanted to bring down the brightness of the green a touch -- I think it worked out nice.

Good thing I love to quilt.

Oh boy -- Im so tired!

Ive never made quilts like this b-4.

I hope its busy at the show and that I can sell some goodies! I might even have the energy to do drag.

I hide the quilting sometimes - but, then - there are time I want it to be crazy obvious.

Only have to bind three quilts and get them though the wash by 330 tomorrow. Time to relax a bit b-4 bed tonight!

This is one of my favorite color combinations. I don't like blue very much, and am not wild about purple, but when purple is mixed with lime green (in any of its shades) I think it is a knockout.

Your fmq looks great.

Very nice! I love to see the stitching on a quilt. One of the things on my bucket list is to learn to zendoodle... I would love to incorporate that into a quilt!

VOGUE-ING AT A QUILT SHOW? YOU are a SCANDAL...

Port, how much to you charge for your quilts? You don't by any chance have a webstore, do you?
