It’s been a cool and miserable weekend…..the perfect kind for quilting, which I’m thrilled about. We rarely get cool, wet weather, it’s usually either cool or wet but rarely both…..I guess that’s what you get living in the tropics?
But this weekend has been perfect for working on a new quilt for a friend’s wedding in a couple of weeks……
I’m using an old favourite with an olde world charm……Old Primrose Inn, by Blackbird Designs for Moda….I’ve been saving it for something ‘special’ and when I asked what the couple’s favourite colours were, they mentioned they liked ‘traditional’ and classy styles but a touch of modern…..browns were good …….and I was sort of left open with the decision. I checked in my stash and found quite a bit of ‘ye olde’ faithful sitting there begging, “Pick me, pick me”….how could I resist!? I think it will fit the bill perfectly, don’t you?
I think I could snuggle up with it, so if they don’t like it they can always give it back?? (I’ll even stitch a ‘return to sender’ label with my address….just in case!)
so…..what are you up to this weekend? Hope you’re all snuggly and surrounded by olde world charm too.
