Yummy fabric

I bought a kit last summer that included the yummy fabric, plus a red Moda Marble. Didn’t really care for the pattern, just wanted the fabric.

Last week, I was asked if I would decorate a table for our library’s spring brunch.  Sure, I said!  And I knew just what I wanted to do, but that  required making this quilt to be the tablecloth….

It turned out that I didn’t have enough of the Moda Marble to do what I wanted, but luckily I had purchased a bolt of red flannel at Joann’s recently.  Quick to piece, quilt to quilt, and a machine finished binding…

Mom is helping me out with the decorating.  I kind of volunteered her.  She does the same thing to me, so don’t feel too badly for her.

I’ll take pictures on Saturday so I can show you what we are doing for our centerpiece/table decoration.  Any guesses?

I didn’t take a picture, but the back of the quilt uses up a big hunk of a plaid flannel fabric that I’ve had in my stash for….10 years?

This morning I took a pile of quilts to a photographer’s studio and had my picture taken!  She said she’d probably have the proofs online for me on Monday or Tuesday.  I had fun, she says the pictures were looking good, I hope she wasn’t lying to me.    She did some “formal” with just me, and then we did a bunch with the quilts involved as props.  She says I can share the link to my proofs. We’ll have to say if I’m brave enough to do that.  Mostly I did it because I thought it would be kind of fun — I don’t have a lot of pictures of myself, and it will be nice to have some that were taken by someone that knows what she’s doing (as opposed to ones taken by one of the boys…).  Oh, and in which I’m wearing my make-up and my hair looks halfway decent.  (At least I hope it looks OK…)

One thing I learned, as I sat on the floor with my legs crossed funny:  I’m in serious need of some exercising to work on my flexibility.   Ouch.  She did say “At least you aren’t kneeling.”

    Hey there Suzy Q! When I stopped by your house a bit ago I thought, hmmm, Suzanne has done something different to her hair and just looks brighter today. Now I know that a curler and make-up got used. Not that you don’t always look good of course.
    I suspect that I have volunteered your services more often than you have mine and I got an easy job this year, so there’s definitely no need to feel bad.

    First, I love the bright red! Second, I can’t wait to see your new pics! I HATE getting my picture taken. The one you have on the MQR home page was quite brave for me. Maybe I need to see a professional………..

    I love the lovely, rich red background! This is a quilt that I’d have on display year round because it is so visually enchanting that looking at it would cheer me on the grayest day.

    Love the quilt..red just is so pretty and appealing. Looking forward to seeing the photos…I usually look terrible in pictures, oh well!

    That sounds like fun – kind of….

    I hate unflattering photos of myself but I love it when I get a good one. I actually posted one today that Keith took out on our walk.
