I may have lied ...

So ... when we were last together I was bemoaning the fact that machine quilting was not exactly at the top of my list (and few other's lists too, I gather.) I said that because I was just starting the MQ process on my latest pattern ... to be unveiled next week, fyi. But between laying down the straight lines (a little bit boring) and doing all the fill in work (a big bit of back breaking) I did some free motion on my tree.

What a joy that was!! I had worried in the piecing/applique process that my leaves would fade too much into the background, but with a bit of King Tut thread (see here) in a varigated green, they came to life. Too. Much. Fun.

I must have had blue and green on the brain because on a side trip to TJ Maxx (to let my back rest ... really) I just happened upon this way too perfect rug which I had seen in my mind for several weeks but hadn't even begun to search for in earnest.

So I just want to say to that girl in the third grade who told me that it was heresy for me to wear blue and green together ...

Take. That.

Quilt and rug just great. And I'll give a shout out to red and pink which were a no-no way back when.

I know! Someone in grade school said the same thing to me too. What were they talking about anyway?? The whole world is blue and green! I love blue and green together.
