One of the fabrics (I suspect that hand-dyed border fabric) bled like crazy in the wash. Since Iwashed it in the sink I was able to add additional dye-catching sheets so there isn't any discoloration on the quilt. That I've noticed.
And here's Fruit Punch, measuring something like 21" x 20":
I love how both these quilts turned out. No contrast problems here.
Both the quilts are now hanging up in the back guest bedroom, which gets some light in the morning, but not a lot. These certainly brighten up the place, and look Terms of Endearment has a place as well. I put all the bright orange/red/yellow quilts where my husband can't see them - he's not a fan of these colors. Look up in the corner - you can see a bit of the gorgeous molding in this room.
Hot Crazy is hanging to the right of the wardrobe you saw in the last picture. On the right are my fabric shelves, which are covered by a gorgous handwoven piece (tablecloth? bedspread?) I bought in Egypt. And through the door into the hallway you can sneak a peak of my Citrus String Star. I still haven't gotten a good photo of that quilt yet.
Over the last week I've been rereading the first two books of Greg Keyes' Kingdom of Thorn and Bone series and today I finished reading the third, The Blood Knight. I can highly recommend them to fellow lovers of fantasy fiction. As a warning tho, don't take the first chapter of The Briar King too seriously. Seems like a goofy Viking book and you might be tempted to toss it, but that's just the prologue and the rest of the action takes place in another 2,000 years. As I said, I love these books. They go along well with George R.R. Martin, Robin Hobb, and Tad Williams.I haven't touched my quilting project in over a week, not since dousing the couch in anti-cat-wee formula. The sofa is where I sit to quilt, but I'm not going over there until the smell abates. My husband doesn't notice it at all, but I keep getting more and more sensitive to chemicals. Additionally, I've started cutting strips of Amish fabric, so maybe one of these days I won't have an excuse not to sit down and sew.
