The Party Is On!

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  I am currently working on a project with blush, navy, and teal, and I simply cannot wait to show it to you.  For now though, you'll have to settle for a shot of the fabric pull.


I also had the pleasure of making a quilt for a friend who is a diehard University of Memphis fan.  Of course, I root for the Tigers of the purple and gold variety, but I know my friend will love this quilt, and living in the Memphis metro area means that I have LOTS of UM fan friends.  FYI-there is some identifying information monogrammed onto the white corner blocks, so I have blocked them out, since this quilt is a surprise.


The biggest challenge with this quilt was finding fabrics in the right shades of blue and gray.  UM is a smaller school, so there is only one licensed fabric in production.  I had to hunt the rest down.  I must say though, that Cotton and Steel tiger print with the royal blue hearts, the tiger stripe with gray and white grunge background, and the blue and gray triangle print are perfect in this quilt.


The backing is pieced with all of the scraps from the top, and a solid cobalt blue binding frames everything nicely.  I can't wait for her to get it.  She is going to flip out!


So, onto last week's party highlights!  Oh my goodness- this MINI Swoon, from Tish's Adventure in Wonderland is too cute.


 This piece of awesomeness by A Pigeon in Pungo was designed after a city map.  So cool!


and the use of color in this quilt, shared by Quilt Fabrication is really pretty.


Alrighty friends!  Time to show off the latest from your studio!

1.  You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.  
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)
