A New Morning...


Remember the handful
of yummy jewel-tone
threads I showed
you last week?

...those ice blues, aquas,
purples, periwinkles,
with a dash
of fuchsia???






Well, here's what I did with them....

Yup, I got the whole thing stitched up! I call it MORNING GLORY. The latest of my American Quilt patterns. (It's not available yet...I still have to finish the graph and instructions, so be patient...keep checking my website: www.ljperindesigns.com for its availability.)

And it was really, really fun to stitch. After stitching lots of other types of complex designs, it was so fun to return to the simple enjoyment of diagonal satin stitched triangles and squares. I stitched this over this past rainy weekend, while watching lots of the Weather Channel and a few movies as well!

This is lovely. I'm planning to take the quilt patterns into wool rug hooking. (Gotta get there first tho, lol.)
