No Sew Zone......

Yesterday morning I had to have a plumber come and fix a toilet and a faucet on the bathroom sink. Then I ran errands.                                When I got home I decided I needed to clean off my long arm table so I can be ready to quilt there too.  I had all sorts of stuff draped over the bars and the plastic that I covered it with at the end of May was still over it.  One of the things on it was these 3 pieces of hand dyed fabric that my daughter bought for me at a quilt shop in the wine country in California.  The fabric is a cotton sateen and the colors are rich and vibrant.                                        Last night my great-niece came over with my sister-in-law to choose a quilt.  I didn't know it but she had already made a quilt  and she loves batiks.  I may be helping her out with her next quilt with my die cutter.  This is the quilt she chose.

When I first looked at that top fabric, I thought it was a stained glass window. That is some lovely fabric.

It sounds like at times your long arm machine is like what my old exercise bike was to me - a place to drape things over :) pretty fabric.

I agree with Gene... I thought you had taken a picture of a church window. You can really see the light coming through it!

Those hand dyed fabrics are lovely.

Your niece chose a great quilt. How fun it must be to see her interested in quilting too.

Beautiful quilt your niece chose. I must try one of those Turning 20 patterns. Bought the pattern book last year.

I can see that it would take expertise to come up with those hand dyed pieces.

What a treat for your niece to have an aunt like you to have such a wonderful stash of quilts to select from.
