Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

I've been busy.....

Well, I didn't mean to be away so long.
 
I was waiting for my "purple" thread so that I could finish Ella's quilt and that took about a week to get here.  Wouldn't you know, when it came, I realized I had ordered "green" thread instead.
 In my head I wanted purple to match the quilt, but they didn't have anything that matched, so I ordered a green to compliment/coordinate with the background fabric.
 
When I saw the posts about the new Pantone color for 2014 - orchid, then orchid just stuck in my head. Oh well.
 
 
I quilted "angel wings" on the quilt and I think it looks so girl-y.  I hope Ella's parents love the quilt when they get it. 
 
I finished the binding today.
 
 
So here is the completed quilt with a peek at the backing.
 
 
 
This quilt is sooooo warm.  I enjoyed having it on my lap while I was hand stitching the binding down.  Of course with the arctic freeze we are suffering over a good portion of the US, I think it will be greatly appreciated. 
 
So this will be off in the mail this week as baby Ella was born this past December. 
 
Now....what will I post about from here on out?  I am working on a dual challenge (killing two birds with one stone) and I won't be able to share it for some time.  I guess I am going to have to get out some UFOs and work on them simultaneously so I have something to report.
 
Well, I hope everyone is warm where it is cold and cool where it is too warm.
Me?  I am praying for an early Spring....very early.  This sub zero weather is just way too cold for me. 
 
Happy quilting.
