Is it Friday already?? I had a sick child home with me all week. Elaina has a strep infection that has really taken the wind out of her sails. Seems like it took forever for the antibiotics to kick in. I think she is finally starting to feel a little relief. I am hoping to get in the garden this weekend. I am in need of some fresh air!! My neighbor gave me 8 pepper plants that he had left over from planting his garden. What a treat it was to find them on my back porch!!
As promised, I am going to reveal Colfax County, a brand new quilt making it’s debut this weekend at Quilt Market. It’s a brand new design by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. Like I said in my previous post, it’s a stunner!!!
The fabric collection is Old Glory. It is LB’s brand new line which will be out in the fall of 2012!! One of the prettiest fabric collections I’ve seen!!!! Get ready for photo overload! 🙂
I believe Lisa said the inspiration for this quilt is an antique quilt she has in her collection.
Here are some before shots.
Did I mention this is a nice sized quilt at 84″ x 84″?
Just a few more of the back…
The design looks totally different on the back!!
I even take photos of the back while I am quilting. Sometimes you see things in photos that you wouldn’t normally notice. I like to make sure my stitches on the back are just as perfect as the ones on top.
Again, another long post…at least it’s mostly eye candy!! 🙂 I love the antique/reproduction look of this quilt. Another keeper for sure!!! I’ll be back with specifics on the quilt as far as thread…batting and such. Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
