'Just love Purple'.......

this was the comment from Elaine, the maker of this stunning purple quilt, when asked for her story at Show and Tell yesterday, it is destined for her own bedroom even though it means that the feature wall has to be repainted, no doubt a job for Hubby.

Elaine purchased the main fabrics, the three purples featured in the heart blocks in Tamworth, she then saw the quilt pattern on the cover of the quilting magazine, APQ, and the rest as they say is history.
Elaine has very kindly agreed to allow us to hang her quilt in our up coming Biennale Quilt Show later in the year.Thanks to Picasa, a closer view of the purple heart.

This quilt with the brighter pastel colours is for Lyn's very new little Granddaughter Dana. The nursery is decorated in mauves and this quilt will star very nicely.
Love this quilt to bits, such simple lines and beautiful fabrics combine to produced a stunning quilt.

What do you do with Selvedges??

Well, you could make a scarf, or maybe a bag, or go really off the planet and follow Jodie from Ric Rac, into the world of upholstery. Yep, she upholstered a chair.

This girl is so talented, go view her chair on and while you are there check out the beautiful selvedge dress that she made for her daughter.

To keep an eye on what Jodie gets up to check out the link to 'Ric Rac' in the side bar under the section titled 'Blogs you may find interesting', scroll down to Ric Rac and click.

Off to post the rest of your pics from yesterday.
