Remember the sneak peek I showed you on Sunday? Well, here’s the reveal – my latest finish is Runaway to
This is a Lyn Brown design she calls Staycation that I found in her Etsy shop. It's a jelly roll quilt and a lot of fun to do! This is my Quilting UFO Challenge quilt for March - all done early except for the binding which will be done by the end of this week - yoohoo!!!
Not being too crazy about the name – but totally crazy about the quilt!!! – I began thinking of a name for my quilt almost before I started piecing it. I finally put together the facts that I pieced this quilt last year at Runaway Quilters Retreat, and I used a Bali Pop for all the bright batik colors to get the name, Runaway to
Bali. Don’t you just love the deep turquoise batik background on this beauty?
It is really something else up close I tell ya!!! As soon as I saw it, I knew what I was going to do with it because I had purchased Lyn’s pattern several months earlier.
I think I did pretty well on the long-arm quilting too. I just love the sweet and simple Daisies Galore panto!
I can really feel Spring in the air today! Yesterday I saw this beautiful spot of color in the grocery store and had to bring it home to brighten up my Ivory Tower! Isn’t it lovely???
I’m off to Book Club this afternoon. We are reading Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult this month, and it is a good one!!!!
A lot like The Green Mile, and it has received some bad press because of that, but still a very good book on its own and I’m enjoying it. Unfortunately, I haven’t quite finished the book, and I hate getting to the group discussion and not participate fully. I really tried to catch up but simply ran out of time. In fact, I was so far behind that I ended up buying it on Audible so I could listen while I quilted! I’ll be sure to finish it up later this week.
What are you up to today? Hope its fun and exciting for you!!!
Hugs & Blessings!
