Eventide: Parade Time
So here it is..quick before the electricity goes out again.
Edited (on 4/6/11) to add: Sorry for the hasty post. It really was a miracle that I got this posted on Monday night. We had horrible storms in GA and sadly 6 people lost their lives in the weather. Along with countless trees (including one somewhere in my neighborhood that caused our power outage before the storm even hit).
I do want to say a BIG HUGE THANK YOU to Thelma at Cupcakes n' Daisies for organizing and maintaining this quilt along. It was so fun and supportive and I loved seeing everyone's progress on Tuesdays. Tuesdays just won't be the same (until the next one??? hee hee). Thank you also for everyone who visited and commented during the quilt along. Another reason why Tuesdays were so much fun--all the comments!
This is a big quilt and outside was the only place I had that was big enough to get a photo. Really. There isn't this much floor space in my little house. I ordered some Moda wide backing and can't wait to get this to a long-arm quilter so I can use it this spring.
Thanks again everyone! To those who have asked the fabric line is Moda Fig & Plum, a line a few years ago from Joanna of Fig Tree Quilts. I love Fig Tree fabric and I bet any of her lines would make a stunning quilt. Thank you Joanna for always designing beautiful fabric. And a big thanks to Carrie of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. for always designing unique and challenging patterns. Lots of pieces, but definitely worth it:)
