So with it being such a nasty day outside, you can no doubt guess that I spent the afternoon INSIDE ... in front of the fire, of course. :0) And a productive afternoon it was too, as I've FINALLY finished my Beetle Boogy quilt top ... WOO! HOO!! :0) Wanna take a sneaky peeky??
TA DA! I am pretty chuffed with how it's turned out! And it's got so many things about it that I just LOVE! ... VW Beetles ... hearts .. cheerful batiks ... and rainbows. It makes me SMILE whenever I walk past it. :0) I'm not sure it makes my Beloved Geek Boy smile, though ... since it's currently in the middle of the dining room floor and he has to keep carefully walking around it to get to his lounge chair! Tee! Hee! Hee!
I love the bright batik colours contrasted against the stark black and white elements.
And I LOOOOOOOOOVE the rainbow corner blocks! It took me a while to work out what I needed in the corners to draw everything together and the rainbows have worked out perfectly. In fact ... I think maybe I need to design a quilt with a larger version of this rainbow design ... what do you think?! Tee! Hee! Hee!
So my Beetle Boogy quilt if now ready to be sent off to the Quilting Fairy ... AKA the Fabulous Fiona. :0) She does an AWESOME job of transforming my tops into quilts and seems to have a sixth sense about just what quilting design will bring the quilts to life without overpowering the fabrics, applique or stitcheries ... maybe we should be calling Fiona the Quilt Whisperer! Tee! Hee! Hee!
Has there been some creating happening in your corner of the world? Any projects being finished? For all you OPAM gals out there, it's time to update your sidebar lists with your finishes for the month and email your tally to my GORGEOUS Partner-In-Crime Sweet Peg or me. We love to see what everyone has been up to each month ... there are SOOOOOO many clever clogs creative ladies out there in blogland and it's incredibly inspiring to see all the different projects being finished and/or progressed each month. Have you taken a blog hop through the OPAM participants? If not, why not make yourself a cuppa, grab a sweetie-treatie and cruise through the list on my sidebar. I guarantee you'll enjoy 'chatting' to some like-minded gals, not to mention being amazed and inspired by all the wonderful projects they're making. :0)
Right now, though, it's time to toss another log on the fire and tackle the dinner prep. Creamy chicken and mushroom bake here tonight ... YUMMO! :0) Whatever you're up to this week, I hope there are rainbows to make you smile! :0) Til next time ...
