Sewing the colorwash.............

I baked one more kind of cookies yesterday afternoon and then last night I worked on the colorwash again.  I have nine of the 18 cross seams sewn.




This hasn't been pressed yet but is a closer view of some of the batiks used.  Some of them are over 20 years old.  I know that because I purchased them while I worked at a quilt shop for which I was the fabric buyer.

The colorwash is looking so beautiful!

Looks terrific. Some people have a photographic memory, you have a fabricphotographic memory.

Absolutely love the purple section—makes me so happy. Thank you for sharing it.. I have a Vietnamese car mechanic who grows Christmas cactus. The one in the front office is about 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide—all green and lush. The office is dark and small and the plant sits about 10 feet from a north window, with very little artificial light, less in the winter as this is in the Seattle area. I always marvel—the plant is something to behold.

Please make a colorwash kit!

I know you do have a photographic memory.... Anyone that can remember how to run a embroidery machine that is 15 years old, and go into detail as to what to do, indeed has a photographic memory ! I do agree with Linda's comment about a fabricphotographic memory also.

Melinda's comment about the humongous Christmas cactus grown in low light is interesting. Is that one of the criteria for growing them ?

Color wash is always a treat to see grow, this one just flows from color to the other... Of course all of your color washes are absolutely gorgeous.

I am absolutely in love with your colour wash quilt.
I am somewhat in awe, I can't seem to be able to cut my Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I have lots but I love the colour and movement which makes me nervous to cut in case I ruin my fabric!
So you have given me some courage now I jut need to work out an efficient way of cutting so many squares without having to sew multiple mini seams.
