Yesterday, I hosted a sew-in at my house for my MQG ladies and it was SO. MUCH. FUN! Six ladies (and one other member who was only able to swing by for a little bit) sewing, chatting, lunching, and laughing from 10:00 am until almost 5:00 pm. The official ending time of 3:00 came and went, and we were all having such a great time, there was no way I was breaking up the party!
During the sew-in, I got all of my blocks put together for my newest quilt. Then last night, I pressed them and finished the top.
I'm really digging this color combo, even though it's not a palette I have ever chosen before. Maybe I like it so much because it's like nothing I've ever chosen before. Pinks and purples are usually not my thing.
Edited- Okay, it just occurred to me why this color combo seems so familiar. Any Frozen fans out there? I may or may not own Frozen for myself, and I may or may not know the words to all of the songs...I'll never tell.

You always see Elsa pictured in her ice blue dress, but it occurred to me that the teal and purple of her coronation dress, along with Anna's bright pink cape are almost the very colors that I've used in this quilt, and I'm sure that's also why I've been thinking that the colors look wintry. As much as I enjoy the movie (as much as a grown person can enjoy an animated princess movie), of course I'm happy that the quilt doesn't scream "Frozen." I just think it's kind of funny that I inadvertently put these exact colors together.
I'm planning to write the pattern for this one as soon as I finish it, and I'm hoping I can get it finished and photographed before everything turns brown around here.
