Passion for purple and a finish

I was determined this week to finish up quilting on
the High Flyer quilt for grand-daughter, a continuing infection
slowed me up but I did it!

I couldn't get a full shot as I was without any helpers
yesterday to hold, but I'll try and get one during the week.

More on my purple houses from
Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2016,
if you check on my last post the second of my
two houses wasn't making me very happy, it's now relegated to
my bits and pieces box and a new one in my usual
favourite KF Collective fabrics is here

now I'm happy!!

A new book arrived yesterday so I'm doubly happy, I've only had a look
at a few pages but boy it explodes with colour
and great ideas

and I'm saving it for later today when I can sit totally uninterrupted
and enjoy!

No flower pics today, wet and dull here presently and the colours
are fading fast in the garden.

If you have a longing for more purple go along to visit Angela at
and get your colour fix!

Have a Happy Week

Sorry that your health has been putting a damper on things for you. Your granddaughters quilt looks cheerful and lovable.

Purple, the house is amazing, lovely quilt, and a good book, the perfect answer for a Sunday.

I looked at that book at the bookstore last night and added it to my wish list. Your High Flyer is wonderful and that house . . . oh my!

Your High Flyer quilt is beautiful - a spring garden in bloom. Looks like another book, I will have to find in our library.

Love your 'high flyer' quilt, gorgeous colours! And yes, the book looks interesting, look forward to hearing what you think about it.

Hi Maureen! I hope you are feeling better now. Congratulations on finishing your quilt although being not well! It is so beautiful and tender with those soft purple tunes! Your house block is as well great. Enjoy your reading. Happy spring!

Kaja said...

Beautiful quilt! And that house looks much more you than the one that has been relegated to the bits and pieces box.

Maureen! Your granddaughter's quilt is truly lovely. She will be thrilled with it! Pat yourself on the back for getting the quilting done while not feeling your best. That's not easy to do.

High Flyer is gorgeous!!! I'm thinking I might need to make a new Cascade with this lovely color scheme.

Stephie said...

What a lucky girl she is Maureen, that's totally gorgeous! And I can see some of my favourite KF prints in there, yum! I've got a lot of catching up to do with you so I'll be popping by during the day between the chores - I'm going to need a good colourful Maureen fix this afternoon!
