On the Catwalk...

I was so excited to receive the call on Saturday morning that my "Yellow Brick Road" quilt was done being quilted that I popped out of bed (this kind of wake up call is welcomed) and tried to rush right over to get it. I ended up waiting until noon to go, but WOW! I love it!! There is just something special about seeing a quilt that you've created using all fabrics that you adore and put together with the backing finally quilted up. It's the time when you get to fall in love with your craft all over again. The time when you get to realize your vision of the project or adjust to a shifted vision. In this case, the quilt that I've been working on (sporadically) for so long is one step away from being completed and on my bed.

In the showing off of this quilt, I had a model auditioning for his turn on the catwalk. What do you think? Paris bound?


I just LOVE the angles of the quilt pattern juxtaposed with the swirly curviness of the quilting design. Perfect!
