I bought it because (1) I didn't have to think about which fabric to use, (2) It looked easy, and (3) I could practice quilting different designs in all the different chevron strips.
I'm tagging along with my husband this week while he has meetings and we are soaking up the sun in Tucson right now. I've forgotten which magazine that this came from, but I do remember the fabric is from Art Gallery's Nordika collection - super soft and very nice to work with.
Oh, and here's a photo I just have to share. Since I don't have any grandkids yet the next best thing is to have a grand-kitty. This is my daughter's kitty, Copper. My daughter is a gemologist and jewelry designer, hence the name Copper. And hence her title, "Copper Goes for the Gold (necklace)" in honor of the Olympics this month. It's all fun!
Isn't that about the cutest kitty you've seen?
Well, no sewing or quilting for me this week since I am away. Instead, I'm catching up with all my quilty blogging friends, and longing for a car so I could go visit Tucson quilt shops! Oh, well. My pocketbook will thank me for staying put.
Remember to quilt with a smile,
