207: Lime Grape Fizz
Okay Peeps, for starters…I was horrified to find out today that a BUNCH of you commented on the last two entries…and I didn’t even know they were there waiting to be approved! I gotta talk to my Web Guru and see what’s up with that. Usually I get an email right away asking to approve or not approve all comments to keep the spammers out…I didn’t know you were all in there waiting to talk to me! Please accept my apologies…along with those to my contest winners whose packages STILL are sitting there. Yikes! I really gotta get those done!
I am kinda in a rush this evening, as I have still some of those same deadlines looming over me…but I wanted to share this newest quilt that is actually in a magazine that you could actually still get, because it just came out!
I just got this quilt back this last week and a couple of issues as well…I will be in a guest blog over at Quiltmakersometime later this week, and there you will be able to see a picture of the inspiration for this design. It is based on a horrendous whole cloth comforter we found somewhere (side of the road maybe) but we thought it would work for the emergency kit in the car… I will post a link to that entry when it gets posted over there…(Ha, I still need to write it up!)
I can’t take credit for the name which I absolutely love for this quilt…When I was naming it..I drew a blank…I ended up calling it the Eva quilt after the line of Moda fabric it is made from…but I guess when the Quiltmaker peeps had it at Houston Quilt Market they were showing it in a Schoolhouse session and asked for name suggestions…and someone there gave it the name Lime Grape Fizz…I totally love it, and I would never have come up with it….If you were the one who named this quilt…I really want to know so I can send you a little something (eventually 🙂 )
So that’s it for this post..this Quiltmaker issue should be out there soon or already, so hurry up and get yourself a copy!
I have more to write about as usual (a lot more actually), but I have to get back to a project that Christine at Michael Miller asked me for using this line, and I am already behind on it. It will be online eventually too. The Sweetie Pie quilt will be available online soon too, maybe this coming week. I will let you know when, or you can just check my new downloads page to find any of the free online patterns I have done.
Oh and on the six-pack battle I think the score is Donuts 8 / Washboard -6 ….sigh…tomorrow’s a fresh start, right?
