This rose is so lovely, I hope that I can keep it alive. It's a Palace Rose. It looks like old silk flowers doesn't it. A lot of people wondered if it was even real. I just can't get over how beautiful it is. Thank you so much Leslie.
So here's the start of my latest project. Totally shocking, not my kind of colors at all, but I was just moved to make something different. I really like the oranges in the Urban Chicks line Summer in the City. It's on of Elizabeth's patterns, At Home. It calls for Jelly Rolls but I just calculated how much to buy for the stack of fabrics I collected and made my own roll!
Here's what I ended up choosing for borders. It will also have a piano key border. Quite cute. Not what I was thinking I'd do, so I'm glad I waited to buy the borders till it was put together. My original plan was to use the Chez Moi floral but just didn't look good. I know when I first started quilting I always wanted to choose everything in advance but now I like to wait, see how the project goes before committing myself.
Today I'm off with Frankie and Elizabeth to this month's opening of Room with a Past. We're hoping to find some apartment goodies! Anne says that's where she's really scored lately, so we're going to try our luck. It's been a while. Should make for a fun day. I hope you have a fun day peoples.. thanks again for the birthday wishes. I appreciate you all so much.
