Ok, ya'll are going to think i've lost my marbles! :)
But I haven't.... really!
Do you remember me sharing with you a loonngg time ago, that i have this little "alter ego" that just DIGS on polka dots and squares? And do you remember me also sharing that there was somthing about lime green, and pink... and blues and browns that just make me HAPPY??
And I'm talkin WAYYYYY outside my normal seriously primitive palette. LOL
WAY WAY outside.
But ... they just make me smile, and feel like turning in circles and blowing bubbles, and playing hide and seek... basically an inner child. (funny i was soo NOT into pink when i was little!!)
Wellllll.... i'm embracing my wild side! :D
I have always wanted to make a quilt with bright pinks, greens, blues, whites, purples... but then i catch ahold of myself ...cuz my love of prim far outweighs these little crazy moments. And besides... WHERE would it go?? LOL it would stick out like a sore thumb at my house!!
Well no better time... Dana from Old Red Barn Co. is having a quilt along! I have long admired her quilts (bright and funky) and her quilter's skill - Russ from Back Porch Quilters - seriously drool every time she posts a new one that he sends back!
She is doing a 6 week quilt along.. and giving step by step instructions, with pictures, and a group over on flikr. Check it out! and I thought no better time to try this than NOW!!! hee hee! I am soooo excited!
So I got my strips cut, sewn together and the blocks cut. Laid it out in my family room..... now to sew all the blocks together.. and then... to ... gulp..... quilt it. This is a BIG HONKER and i am reallllyyyy not excited about the quilting portion!! LOL (small girth sewing machine does not make this fun! lol)
So... laugh all ya want at my HOT PINK, GREEN & BLUE quilt!! But I LIKE IT!!! :D
hee hehe heheheheee
