You're likely wondering if I have turned off my sewing machine and thrown the dust cover over it as I have not posted in some weeks. The answer is, no, I am still stitching away as I work towards getting all my Grandmother's Choice blocks set together.
A few weeks ago I discovered that a friend has just completed a small oil painting of the lavender fields in Provence. As you know I have been in a green and purple mood for a year or so and when I saw the painting I thought she must have painted it specially for me! Of course, she did not, but I decided I would buy it as I loved it. Serendipity you see.
I will need to find a better frame for the painting but I popped it into this frame I already had so I could photograph it with some of my Grandmother's Choice blocks.
But the way the colors in Begona's painting went so well with my quilt made me think of what fun it would be to make a quilt inspired by some of my other paintings. Sadly, unless I can find a load of extra time, I don't see that idea coming to fruition any time soon! But it is sure a lovely concept to think about. What inspires you to start a quilt?
Okay, I better get back to cutting my sashing cornerstones. There will be another break from the green, purple and white tomorrow as, it being the first Saturday of the month, a new Dixie Diary block will be posted and that needs me to be in the pink and grey mood.
