I took the first picture below on New Year's Day, 2008. While I'm happy to see that I was doing something I love to start the new year, I'm embarrassed that Linda just got the finished quilt this past Thanksgiving. Really? And I'm a longarmer? Sigh. It took so long that Linda asked me once if I'd hurry up and finish it before purple was no longer her favorite color LOL!! I TOLD you she's part of the family!
I think the first photo below shows the correct colors. At least I hope it does, because the others are a little drab, and Linda is NOT. This is an Atkinson Design pattern called "Anything Goes", quilted with the pantograph Fantasia with a gorgeous purple variegated King Tut thread. This one for Linda has scrap purples, but the black is a single fabric from the Dimples fabric line.
I made one for myself in a black/brown/gold colorway, with all fat quarters. Mine, however, is still just a top. Maybe by 2015???
Doesn't the photo below look out of focus? It's the backing fabric! Look at the pic following it and you can see what it looks like a little closer.
