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!

Have a ton of fun at the show, and hope you got some needed Sleep!! Love how you showed your stitches in the photo's, and you are so right, it toned down the green just a notch ;-)

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?
