My darling sis made me go to Joann's with her last night in the frigid windy cold! BUT I was able to use a gift certificate she gave me for my birthday which more than made up for it. I got these fabrics to make a table runner or topper for St. Patrick's Day. I purchased two more half yards of fabric with my gift certificate, too, for a machine quilting class we're taking at Ryco on February 19. The photo came out very dark, but I'll show it to you anyway.
The top left fabric is a gorgeous purple to match the color in the coleus - I love this coleus fabric! I guess I cut off part of the fabric in the photo - oh, well. I am striving to be an accomplished quilter, not a photographer :-) And now that I look at this picture, maybe that orange is too bright? Hmmm...
For the class we are required to make a 15" Amish Basket block with two contrasting fabrics. I've made one so far and I'll show you the blocks when I have the other stitched up.
Thanks for tarrying with me - have a wonderful day!
