A little alliteration is good for the soul, I think. So, progress on the pink quilt is slow (midterm grading, I’m sad to say). Still, here we have a pink strip set:
That became little pink blocks:
That have the first set of rows added:
And lucky me, I received this absolutely gorgeous placemat from Julie in a placemat swap:
Isn’t it just wonderful? Beautiful fabrics and a luscious design! The photo doesn’t show it off as well as I would like, but the quilting is fabulous. All wonderful free flowing swirls. She also sent a bunch of goodies along with. Pretty cards, a gorgeous fabric, and (dear to my heart) chocolate!
I haven’t actually started the placemat for Julie yet, I’m embarrassed to admit. I have doodled and doodled but none of my ideas were thrilling me. But then last night I woke up in the middle of the night with an idea in my head, knew the design I wanted (simple but I hope it will work) and even the quilting style I wanted to use. So, since it is definitely time for me to be working on this, I’ll have teaser photos to show in the next day or two.
