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!

Creative Chaos

It seems there are never enough hours in a day. I have so many projects that i want to accomplish but i would probably have to live until I'm 1000 years old lol. I finished so many projects while off from work, but they were all new ones (at least I was productive right?). I did not finish not one single UFO. Why does it always seem to go that way? Well, I decided to take inventory and show you guys what I needed to finish (what I was willing to admit publicly). I had at least 12 tops that needed quilting and at least 6 projects that were in varous stages of completion. Looks like I need more times off (wish it was that easy). Here are those quilts that are completed at least. Until next time.

Ok, so I'm really new at this and I forgot to mention what fabrics I'm using. I kinda don't remember them all. But I am definitely a Moda fabric kinda girl. I love Kona solids.  I believe that is Kona white. The other fabrics I cannot really be sure. Most of the fabrics are from Michael Miller and some are by Robert Kaufman, not sure of the lines. I will do better in future posts to remember. Until next time.
