Rsc Green Lightening #1 and !! Finished ( or not) Friday!!!

 (Go) Go Green Lightnin', you're burning up the quarter-mile

(Green Lightnin', go Green Lightnin')

Ear worm right?? and yes - I changed the words to match my Quilt!!
This is #1 of 3 Green Lightening quilts that I made out of my January RSC blocks..

The dog and I took a walk to see if we could find a good Sunshiney spot - and we did!! 
I quilted Flowers all over it - it was fun!

I had found a piece of Western Shirt fabric in my stash and I thought it would be fun to see what it looked like......

Yay!! One down - Two to go!!!

Last week one of our Veterans who is also a Law Enforcement officer died on his way home from work, This week my Aunt in Law passed away... Its really interesting to me how my Quilting can keep me level and somewhat sane when things like this happen. Its almost a tangible relief, or expression to me to dig in to that fabric. 

Does quilting help you that way too? 

I am excited to see what you all have been up to this week. I know a lot of you went to QuiltCon - we even have a FONF participant who might have won a little something there:

  CONGRATS!!! you will also want to check out her blog for a recap of the show!!

Love your quilt and the colors used! The backing is fabulous! Sorry to hear about the loss of the friend and your aunt. Quilting helps me to deal with life in a positive way too!

Linda said...

No ear worm here...don't know that song! said...

You made a two sided quilt! I love pieced backs. The shirt fabric was a great choice.As for your question about quilting and keeping oneself somewhat sane. . . Yes! When life hands out sticky icky bits, fabric flowing under the needle provides a respite of calm. Sorry to read of your recent losses.

Yvonne from Quilting Jetgirl said...

Aww, thank you so much for the congratulations. I love this Green Lightning finish! You found the perfect sunny spot to photograph the beautiful quilting. :)

Sara said...

The back is almost as much fun as the front with that shirt fabric. Great choice!!

Allison said...

Sorry you are coping with the loss of two people in your life. I think quilting (or any form of creativity) is good for processing thoughts and emotions.

I'm so sorry you've had such awful news this week. Quilting always helps me work through sorrow and keep on track. I joke that it's like therapy, but it's not far off! Thanks for the pattern for your Lightning quilts, they're so nice, and it's just what I needed. Your quilting is so beautiful.

Kate said...

So sorry you had such a rough week, and so sorry for your loses. Love the flowers on your lightening quilt, very fun. The backing is really fun too.

Gwyned Trefethen said...

Yes, I often process grief by hunkering down in the studio and quilting. It allows me the time to reminisce in private. Sometimes I even create a piece inspired by the loss. So sorry to hear about your losses.

The lightening pattern is very striking done in greens.
