Rainbow Scrap Challenge - a Purple Finish!!!

If you stopped by yesterday, I am going to ask you to make sure you are sitting down, and you have no liquids in your hand.... seriously.....  ready???



I have another                        FINISH!!!



Is that just not the craziest thing you have heard in a long time from me????

At the beginning of the month - when Angela announced purple - I remembered my Purple blocks from the 2015 RSC challenge - and they said they wanted to be a quilt.... and when fabric talks....


You had better quit drinkin'   ... just saying!!!



The wind was blowing again when it came time to try to photograph this one
So I hid behind one of our fences.

Did you know that at times, even that doesn't stop the wind????


My Artsy Fartsy Shots
I quilted these spirally Feathers all over it
And I love the texture


And because you need to see it in its full glory again
Here you go
( plus I took 45 photos)



The deets
The block

All Purple 30's Repro prints
Border - Got that at Devils Lake, ND on a fishing trip
 (yep, you know where I went)

Size 60in x 60in

Congratulations on the finish! (artsy fartsy shots -- love that phrase)

Totally get taking 45 photos of a newly finished quilt. I've never (cough cough) done that.

This is a very charming finish. and 'finish' is all i've been hearing from you lately! Our toughest goal is to keep the momentum going without outside interruption. lol

Finished. Quilted (beautifully, I might add). Bound. Wow, I want some of what you're taking, so I can get some of my UFOs finished like yours.

Pretty little quilt. Reminded my of the bagful of lavender strips languishing in a bag in my basement since I made my daughter's graduation quilt in...wait for it...1989! Yeah!!

Thank you for not showing all 45 pictures. :)

Your swirly feathers are so appropriate for photographing in the wind!! They look like they are floating in the wind. I love this quilt, good job!
