Basting along

I bought this Simply Irresistible pattern at the AQS quilt show in Paducah, Kentucky about 3 or 4 years ago.




 I finally pieced it together a year and a half ago. Now I have finally basted it (with Mr. RX's help)
and she is ready to be quilted.




 still a little undecided about what color thread to use. I never want to go with regular neutral or white. That would be way too easy. I always want to do something different which takes a longer time to get started.


Here are a few close-ups of this baby. I so love this quilt. It has my favorite color, pink.  Maybe I'll quilt her with a light shade of pink hmmm. I just don't want the quilting to compete with the fabric. BTW the focus fabric is a is a wonderful fabric by Loralie Designs. The rest are from a quilt kit (I don't remember the vendor) and some are from my stash. Usually when I buy a kit, I like to mix in some of my own fabrics just to make it more my style.



Well, here's till next time. Happy quilting!

    1. I love that quilted jacket and I have been drooling over the bernina 800 series for about 1 and 1/2 years now. I'm so jealous lol.

    1. Mr. Rx for quilting is anxious for me to get some of those
      UFOs finished. So he is an eager volunteer. Sad to say I still have not started quilting it as of yet!

  5. I noticed you have a lot of beautiful pieced tops that haven't quite made it to the finish line. Your work is beautiful.
