NTT- Purples in Progress

Welcome back to Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  My vacation last week was really wonderful, even if I did bring home an unwelcome souvenir.  I started feeling unwell just as our trip was coming to a close, and unfortunately it has persisted.  A test confirmed that it's not Covid, but since I'm going on a full week of fever and other cold symptoms, it's still a pretty big bummer.

Even still, between naps I have gotten in a few minutes of sewing here and there, and my purples are really coming together.  I don't even have them pressed yet, but I love how they look so far, and I can't wait to see the full rainbow laid out on my wall.

Our last party was two weeks ago, but it was filled with plenty of amazing projects.  Take a look at this beauty by Nancy at Grace and Peace Quilting-

Sally at Crafts, Cavies, and Cooking linked up this sweet quilt finish-

And Anorina at Samelia's Mum shared this gorgeous quilt.  Just lovely!

Okay, y'all!  It's time to link up the latest projects from your studio.  And while you're at it, I'd love some good vibes so I can get back to feeling 100%.

1You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link within your 
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. I hope you're feeling better very soon. Those purples are beautiful. Thanks for sharing my quilt :)

  2. I'm sorry to hear you brought home an unwelcome visitor from vacation, but I'm glad it's not covid. I hope you feel better soon!

  3. So inspirational! All these fabulous quilts! Olde Quote: When 3 people say you look sick - lay down. So take the time, get a glass of "something" and lay down. You do so much for everyone - Take care.

  4. I hope you are feeling better soon! What a cute diary of your purple collection! Thanks for sharing my rainbow scrap quilt!!! I'm looking forward to meet you in person, Kelly, at Minnesota Quilters in August!!!

  5. Sorry you are ill, Kelly, but hope you are feeling better soon. Take good care of yourself and rest when you need to!

  6. Hope you feel better. And thanks for the feature!

  7. Your purple scraps really do look great together! I wouldn't have enough purples in my scraps (or stash) to make an improv-y block like that. I'm sorry you're not feeling well! Goodness, I think whatever bug bit you sounds worse than the COVID I had in January - just a bit of sore throat, congestion, and a few days of being unable to taste. No fever. So glad I "got that out of the way!" :-) Get better soon!

  8. Nothing like being under the weather in the middle of summer. Bummer. I hope you feel better soon. Your purples are looking great. I enjoy seeing what others have done recently.


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
