The Collection Identified...

I stole a little studio time yesterday to work on my Love Bird applique' quilt. We had friends join us at our home for dinner, so preparing for their visit and the meal we would be sharing kept me in the kitchen for more of the day. I managed to sew all of the strip sets together, and I'm showing just a few of them to you.

Thank you to Jan (from Bessie Mary )blog for figuring out which Fig Tree fabrics were in my jelly roll. Most of the line is called Dandelion Girl, but there are also elements from the Urban Indigo line, too. I really appreciate that you spent some time online, Jan, and then sent me links so that I could see for myself. Above and beyond, my friend. I really appreciate the effort.

I'm going to have time to play in the studio today, so I'll press all the strip sets I assemble before I cut them into squares, and then triangles. I'll take lots of photos so I can share my day with you tomorrow.

I hope your Sunday is filled with rest, relaxation and time spent doing what you love.

Hey Girlfriend,

I can't believe that's a shot from your workroom........I swear it looks like a store! I'm so jealous, but hey if you're gonna' do the amazing things you do, you gotta' have the right set-up. I'm so excited to see this quilt done.......I love the applique aspect. Best of luck sweetie.

Love ya'

Beautiful fabrics. I look forward to seeing how these strips become colorful squares and triangles.
Have a wonderful Sunday.

I agree with Meri! At first, I thought you had found another display photograph of the collection! Your space is so wonderful, and you are too quick -- sewing and cooking and entertaining!
So glad I could help solve the mystery. I love a good puzzle!

Have a great day, my friend. Brenda sent me a photo of the pillow you made for her. You are so compassionate and caring, Donna. I know you brought tears to her eyes, and mine.

In part to you and your gift, I think my heart is starting to heal. I needed a nudge. Thank you, my friend, for that nudge in red and white.
