A little more sewing, a closer look at the fabrics

I used a lot of fabrics that are different than the ones in the book.  I thought you might like to see some of them closer.  A lot of them are Philip Jacobs and a few Martha Negley in addition to all of the Kaffe Fassett fabrics.









Here is a another section.  I used a lot of different fabrics.














I took this shot from a different angle than yesterday, hoping to capture the essence of the fabrics a little better.  I have just one seam that needs sewing in the left section.  The middle section is about 3/4 sewn.  The 6 squares on the bottom of the center row are sewn together so there is just that section above them to finish.
Yesterday was errand day and I went to computer club at night so there was only about an hour and a half to sew.  More time today I hope.

This quilt is packed with "WOW" and I'm loving the colors! Shoot, just patting the fabrics would make me happy!

These are my colors. I looked through my Kaffe fabrics and I don't have these. Mine are more of the deeper hues. I've only started collecting him since early summer, so not so much yet. Also, could I impose and ask as to what you learned in computer class? Is it for the embroidery or just computer stuff. thanks, Hilary

Roselady/Hilary, can you go into your profile and put a check mark in front of 'show my email', then scroll down and SAVE. I have no way of contacting you to answer your questions.

Thanks for the close up of fabrics.... even better when I enlarged the photo's. How big is this one ? It looks like a queen for sure if not a king size.

It has to be fun joining the fabrics and watching them meld into a wonderful piece of artwork.
