Inspiration finally hit and I think my swap partner will get their four season's quilt before the Australian spring!!
If we go back a post or two you may remember I toyed with this for spring....
and then decided it wasn't safe enough so played with this....
Well, it just wasn't quite me and I couldn't get back into it until this flash of inspiration hit me. (while watching High Society with my girl yesterday...must have been the combined crooning of Bing and Frank!!)
Speaking of combining inspiration, I combined the free pieced roses and the pieced background to get this result.
I am happy with this, I even altered the leaves, the needle turned ones will wait for another day. They needed to be more free.
There's a close up. Just need to baste and quilt it now and it will be in the mail. That is one thing off a very long list of things that needed doing, I have noticed a lot of you putting up lists of your WIPs, I wont scare myself with that...until at least after this market is over...but this would make a good motto!
She reminded me a bit of Grace Kelly out of High Society. Today we watched The Philadelphia Story, which is the same play, didn't excite my girl as much but made more plot sense to me!!And I personally think Katherine Hepburn outdoes Grace for character if not beauty...am I alone?
have a great day, Tracey
