Perfect For The Wanderlust...

I wanted to share a photo of my new quilt installed in the Flying Cloud.
The color scheme fits perfectly with the upholstery on the cushions.
 In case you're interested, I used the small polka dots fabric from Deb Strain's 
Cherish Nature line for the curves. The balance of the fabrics (including the 
coffee cup fabric) were from Deb Strain's Bistro line from Moda. These lines
are at least four years old, and were favorites from my fabric stash. 

 I finished "Coffee Drunk"!
I really didn't want another UFO sitting in the studio. I wanted to
finish it in time for our Tuesday evening guild meeting, and I got
close. The only thing that wasn't done was applying the binding.
quilt front
 I took photos prior to the binding going on (it matches
the sashing between the blocks), because I wanted you
to be able to see how "drunk" the pattern looks! lol
Quilt back
 The really cool thing about this quilt is that you can only 
control the design on the front. The back becomes completely
random, but it doesn't look that way on mine (too much).

Handsome really likes this one. He said that we should use it
as a really cool table quilt in the Flying Cloud. Brilliant idea!
It will fit right in with our decor in the camper, and it's a perfect
use for my completed class quilt. I'll update this post later today
by taking a picture of the quilt installed in the Airstream.

Now to tackle the next project calling to me...

Hi Donna,
Thought I'd stop by and say hello and see what you been up to. I look at all your lovely designs and I'm amazed at your creativity.

This one is a stunner. Just beautiful!

Hi Donna, I am visiting my friends as I watch the snow come down out the window. I am glad to be home. I like the quilt top. It reminds me of some carpet in a motel that when you walked down the hall it made you think you were drunk. I will be looking forward to seeing it after you you get it bound. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers your Missouri Friend.

Handsome is quite right about using it in your "Cloud". Seeing this quilt I cannot imagine how you quilted as you went along. Is it like an "E-Ticket" ride at Disneyland that makes you dizzy? Lovely Dear...
