You might be wondering why I posted a picture of the center of my Madrigal pattern.
Well I'm going to tell you why right now! A package arrived from Marcus Fabrics the other day and it contained this wonderful fabric collection called Red Rose & Vine by Paula Barnes.
I think it would be perfect made into a Madrigal quilt. Now I just need to add another ten hours to my day so I can work on this quilt!
I also see a Lucy Boston block in my future using these two prints. Thank you so much Marcus Fabrics for sending me a box filled to the rim with quilty goodness.
For those of you wondering, I finished the slide show for our son's 40th birthday party. I cry every time I watch it! The Jim Croce song, Photographs and Memories, keeps replaying in my head. I didn't use the song in the show, but I have been going through photographs which have been sparking, or igniting many memories over the past week or so. I hope I can hold it together while we watch the show with the family. I can turn into a blithering idiot in a blink of an eye when I think about my precious kids and grandkids. For me, life is all about family.
Awww...sending you a hug...where's my Jim Croce CD...?ReplyDelete
That fabric is really fabulous!! Great for both things you are thinking about using it for. And I hope it all goes well for you sons party: yes, family is really the best thing in life!! Hugs, HReplyDelete
Such a stunning fabric collection - you will have tons of fun with that! And I'm with you on the blithering front - it seems the older I get the easier for me to become mopey at the drop of a hat. Oh well, it's a sign that you care, and a very nice one.ReplyDelete
Oh Lynn - you KNOW I am going to love this fabric. It is stunning. I can see several quilts in my mind using these fabrics. And yes - so many memories can bring tears to my eyes when I think about my family and my children. Have a beautiful party. You do such a great job creating memories of your own... hugs...ReplyDelete
Hey - does anyone happen to have any of The Red Rose and Vine fabric? I have a couple of FQ bundles but I'm needing border fabric. HELP!ReplyDelete
