Pantone 2014 - Radiant Orchid

 
This is the color for the year. 
 
 Could that be why I haven't received my thread for Ella's quilt?  It's about this shade.  I have been waiting for the thread so that I can put the quilt on the long arm.  Maybe there is a rush on this particular color of thread. 
 
 
Well, maybe my quilt and the new color aren't quite the same.
 
 
Oh well, so in the meantime, I put this quilt on the long arm.
 
 
These blocks were about 9 years old, so  I put them together so that the quilt top could be used for a practice piece on the long arm. 
 
I chose "Flurry" which is a snowflake panto.  It was a little more difficult than what I have used so far, but hey...I could probably do snowflakes in my sleep about now. 
 
 
My next step is to bind this quilt and then I will post a picture of the completed quilt. 
 
The more practice I get, the better I will get. 
 
ok...tap, tap, tap.....I'll patiently wait for my thread.  I do have other things I can do while waiting, but it would be nice to get Ella's flannel quilt done while we are experiencing subzero weather.

  1. How long have you had the long arm? Thinking of all the quilts you'll get done. That is when you get the thread. I have a flowering orchid on my table right now that same colour.
