"Shine", a special gift for a special friend.
I'm keeping this short and sweet. The fabric story for this quilt goes like this:
*The center green floral is one of the feedsacks Arlene gifted to me.
*The white linen/pink embroidery fabric was a clearance purchase a year or so ago at Joann's and I was waiting for a special project to use it on since they only had about 1/3 yard of it left.
*The tan linen was also a gift from Arlene.
*The burnt orange batik making the lower right star was a fat quarter freebie with an order. When I got it, I tried to give it to Arlene, a tried and true batik lover, telling her that it was the ugliest fabric I had ever seen (sorry all you batik fans out there!). Not only would she not take it, she made me keep it telling me that I needed to have a "little ugly" to put in all my quilts. She should have taken the weapon away from me when she had a chance. Now it's immortalized. For good. Amen.
Have a great week everyone! My posts and visits to your lovely blogs will be sporadic until the end of September. We'll catch up for sure after that!
