Thinking about using these fabrics for the wedding quilt. (Bittersweet for Benartex, designed by Nancy Halvorsen). Colors are much nicer seen in person! Pattern will 'probly be rail blocks (shown in last blog entry). Stripe works for binding, cream mottle for light outside rail.You may see the entire Bittersweet line HERE. Also toying with using a flannel kit for the wedding quilt since the couple will be moving to Germany this summer. My DH also liked the idea of batik fabrics and a four- patch pattern (seen in the Keepsake Quilting catalog HERE). I have batiks stashed. That four-patch pattern has lots of blank space that deserves a nice specific quilting design (but I want to use an easy all-over panto). Will let my DH pick which quilt he wants.
Well. Mocha is gone. I dropped her with transport Wednesday Morning. What a sad feeling for me. I went to the nearby WallyWorld in Benson to schlep around and take my mind elsewhere. Bought summer jammies and a strawberry lemonade to sip on my 40 mile drive home. Lucked out in the tiny fabric department to find five yards of a heavy weight perma pressed Roc Lon brand muslin. That muslin will go well with some "prim" projects I have stashed away .
Two Mocha memory pics I'll keep. Found time to clip face, feet and tail, oh she was so good about that. (I'm partial to a clean face vs fuzzy face on poodles). Mocha's nose was forever dusty from snatching toys and romping across the front field. (Thanks Sandra for pointing out Mocha's heart shaped nose, I had not caught that). Snapped the below photo after she lapped from my glass of cold water. Silly girl did not even blink from the flash. LOL Flash makes her look silver but she is truly a deep inky black.
