I'm not referring to a beverage; I'm referring to my quilt in the making.
Well I admit I'm one of those crazy quilters, who, on occasion, will start one project and then begin another. If you noticed in one of my previous posts, I designed my "Sunrise Social" quilt on EQ7 and was ready to begin cutting and piecing, BUT fabric from my stash kept catching my eye. I suppose I was more in the mood to work with the bright pinks, limes, intense yellows, and the deep orange fabrics that I had recently acquired then to move forward with my original project. (I keep telling myself that I'll get back to the other project once I complete this one. LOL) It was a bit of a inner-struggle; I tried to ignore the fruity, fun colors but failed miserably. I relinquished control, and so I am now the proud owner of a pieced top, soon to be my quilt called "Fruit Cocktail", which is all improvised piecing. Putting this together was just as much fun as the colors, and I incorporated white throughout to make the colors pop even more. This is still a "work in progress," however, I wanted to share what I've accomplished so far.
Anyway, here is the top:
And here's my backing and the lime green print will be my binding.
I will be free motion quilting but have yet to determine the design. It may be fruit, it may be flowers, it may be shapes, or a combination? Who knows?
I can't wait to show you the finished product, which will be posted at a later date--sooner NOT later!
We'll chat soon!
