LDQ #79 Purple Patches

I’m right on track with Clue 3 of En Provence, and I’m linking up. I am so enjoying seeing all the posts on Instagram from those of you participating. Here’s where I am. Spinning those seams, again. I didn’t have a wide variety of light purples, but I think it will work out just fine.


I made a quilt for my friend Amy, in our Fat Quarter Xmas Swap. THIS QUILT was the inspiration, and here is my interpretation.

Rainbow Wedge


The quilt I received in this swap makes me very very happy! The close up of the quilting highlights the hummingbirds stitched in bright pink thread!



Let’s Get Twilty!

    I got a little behind. #Podcastdeliquent again. Sigh!

    Your new microphone is amazing! did it come with your new phone or is it separate?

    The rainbow quilt is great. It does have an illusion of wobbliness. My eyes are freaking out a bit looking at it. It would make a great pattern for some people.

    Thanks for mentioning my Triangle Technique!

    I had some trouble with another quilt when I used one fabric for lights and darks. I can’t wait to hear how it works for you.

    More later,

    Thanks Jaye! I bought the mic separately on Amazon. I’m glad it’s sounding good!

    Thanks Sarah! I had planned to, but since noticed other similar quilts online so I will make sure someone else doesn’t already have a pattern before I venture down that road.

    I am back to finish the last 18 minutes or so of your podcast. Stupid to be #podcastdeliquent again, but there you have it. I have just finished Haunted Season by G.M. Malliet and have determined that I need to catch up on podcasts before I read another book.

    I talked to my quilter about Minkee and told her your idea to wear a mask next time she quilts with it. She had just finished a quilt with Minkee and thought she was going to die from breathing the fluff in. Bleah.

    I looked up Lady of the Lake for you in my Quilter’s Album of Patchwork Patterns book. Well worth a purchase, if you don’t have it. Jinny Beyer says it is part of an Aunt Martha series and says nothing about its name changing, but I don’t see any alternate names listed, so I think you are right. Will you post some pics of your blocks? I searched your blog and couldn’t find any photos. Did I miss something?

    I also don’t really drink coffee. My stomach can’t handle it, though I do drink a latte every once in a while. I do drink black tea, but limit myself to two cups today.

    I still like my Oliso iron, but I am finding it to be very heavy. I press left handed and am having pain in my left hand, which means that the weight has been a challenge. I have had to switch to my right hand, which just messes up my whole ironing set up. I wouldn’t buy another one.

    Take care,
    Have fun in Savannah.
