Sucessful party and after party sewing..........

The bridal shower was a huge success and it was so nice to see family at a joyful occasion instead of a funeral.  There were 21 attending and my huge living/dining room was a perfect setting.

After they all left I went down to the basement and decided that purple was the choice for the edge pieces and sewed the last triangle unit to fill the second row.  I then chose the next color for the bottom of the third row but haven't cut it yet.  It is a Martha Negley grape print in a hot pink.
I also may switch out that blue print and put the purple grapes with the purple fern print as a 4 patch.  I was too tired to make any decision on that last night.  Today is church sewing circle in the afternoon so I'll make some decisions tonight.

Glad you had a good time. Seeing Family as you said other than a funeral is much more pleasant. The choices you made for the quilt as spot on. Enjoy your day think it will be a good one to get out and take a drive. Chris

It is good you got to enjoy all the fruits of your cleaning. I bet all the goodies went. Can't wait to see the new color triangles in place. I am trying to recover from the bus trip to Paducah. 15 hours to and 18 hours back. Not a bus person I guess.

I'm glad your party went so well and you got to see your family again. I am very curious about this quilt, my vision of it is clouded but I know that you will make another masterpiece.

I love those purples. I think they will be very nice in the quilt.

I am happy to hear the shower was a success! The Spritz cookies are a wonderful reminder of my childhood when my mom would make hundreds of them at xmas time. My job was to cut a maraschino cherry into tiny, tiny pieces for the wreaths and xmas tree cookies. I just got my mom's cookie press this past weekend.

I'm sure that the shower was a huge success. I'll bet it felt good to get back to some sewing too.

I know exactly what you mean, there are people in my family (actually my in-laws because that's the family I see on a regular basis, my own family lives in Denmark and I see them every summer) we only see when there's a funeral! Glad you had a chance to do something fun with your family. 1087
