Another Quilt Finish--Eventide

the only place big enough to photograph this quilt is outside on my fence!

detail--I used the same plum solid for the binding. 
It has been too hot (everywhere) to do much of anything so S. and I have watched an unusual amount of DVDs lately (we finished both seasons of "Game of Thrones" in record time).

So I sewed lots of binding. Finishing both Morph's quilt and "Eventide".

I didn't realize it was only last year when Thelma had her quilt along.  Good thing I have a blog to go back and check these things.

I just love this quilt and wish it were cold enough to snuggle under it.  Maybe in October...

The fabric is a Fig Tree line called "Fig and Plum."  The pattern is by Miss Rosie.  I adore this quilt with all its soft yumminess.  My long-arm quilter did a great all over feather design (click the photos to enlarge).  Joanna's new fall line called Tapestry has a similar deep plum color.  I just *may* have to add this to my "gotta have" list.

This quilt is definitely one of my favorites. But don't just take my word for it; this quilt is also Edgar Poe approved.

Your quilt is beautiful. I especially like your use of the dark plum. I have the pattern and want to use Astor Manor for it. As always, love the cat photos.

I hope you will be at Thimbles. I need your help with fabric selection for my Eventide. I just can't figure out where my colors go! Hope it is not another senior moment.

I love your Eventide quilt! It is beautiful! You did an amazing job with it! I noticed that the Tapestry line was similar to the Fig and Plum group... I had pulled some stash out of the closet and held it up to my Tapestry charm packs... yes, you do need them on your list!

Absolutely spectacular! It is such a beautiful quilt! The colors are amazing. I just love where you placed the plums. I may have to look at her new line. You have been really inspiring me to try new colors and this plum is no exception!

Dear Poe. He looks happy but also just a bit apprehensive that you might make him get off the beautiful quilt.
