Indie Groove

It seems I've had a serious case of blog flu, unable to write or post without being intimidated by ideas and overcome by procrastination. Now I need to use it or lose it, and I'm not quite ready to give it up.

I never showed you this quilt in its entirety, did I?
Indie Groove

Two years ago I won some of Pat Bravo's Indie fabric from Lily's Quilts. It seemed ideal to pair with Sujata Shah's Painted ZigZag quilt pattern. I think it's fascinating to follow the flow and break of the colors in the zigzags. 

I quilted it with a metallic copper thread. Maybe it's lost in the busy-ness of the fabrics, but I like to think it adds to the pizzazz of this pattern!

You can see here how I quilted from the back of the quilt, loosely following the floral pattern on the backing to get an overall floral design on the front.

Now this quilt has gone to live at Cris's house. The colors are perfect for her! It was great fun to surprise her with this gift for her birthday.

I am the proud owner of the above quilt...I love everything about it! I love that it was created by my dear friend Linda. I love the colors, the design and the metallic cooper thread! But most of all I love the lady who gifted it to me for my birthday! What a complete surprise it was.
