Bright Thread on Black Fabric & January Projects

I love the backs on both of these quilts...

Bright lime green on a black/deep purple backing fabric.

Bright harvest gold on a solid black backing.


  • Master bedroom painted. Check.  Next up on the list will be the new window treatments, starting with Roman Blinds (hopefully will start tomorrow?)
  • I'm attempting to put together a portfolio of quilts.  All quilts have been dragged out, lightly spritzed, and then rolled into tubes on the diagonal in an attempt to remove the fold lines so they can be photographed.  The photos need to be taken outside on an overcast day.  The Universe has gotten carried away with the 'overcast' thing.  If this stupid FOG doesn't go away soon ...  Well, in addition to me not being able to take photos, we are all going to start getting a bit moldy.
  • As a member of the Program Committee for the Caledonia guild I've been trying to organize a sewing event for our March meeting when we can work on outreach quilts.  I bribed a friend with dinner, so she agreed to come help me sort out the guild collection of blocks (hokey smokey!!  There were TONS of them!).  Last night we kitted up six bags with a plan.  Two tops are already almost completely finished from last year, they just need a couple more rows and/or a border.  Four bags require assembly, but have plans enclosed.  There is another group of blocks that will make a nice sampler quilt that I hope to prep.  Additionally, we bagged two future projects that need a bit more planning, and there is still a bag with lonesome blocks that need sorting.
