Luscious Color and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  I finished up my latest quilt top and in these doldrums of winter where everything is brown and gray, I could stare at these vibrant colors all day long.

These florals have me wishing for spring!  I've got the backing all put together, but this one will have to sit on a shelf for a little bit because I just received the draft of my book from my publisher!  For the next week or so, I'll be going over (and over and over) each word, measurement, image, and photo to make sure everything is exactly as I want it.  It's a little tedious, but seeing my manuscript turned into an actual book NEVER gets old.

So, onto last week's highlights!  Nancy at Grace and Peace Quilting shared this rainbow beauty-

This lovely churn dash is from Alycia at Quiltygirl-

And this stunning pink quilt is from Kris at Sew Sunshine-

Y'all are awesome!  I know you've got lots happening in your studio, so let's see it!

  1. Your quilt top is the perfect antidote to the winter doldrums. I hope your manuscript review goes smoothly!

  2. Love the colors of your latest quilt top!!! And how exciting to see your book coming closer to publication-I can't wait!!! Thank you for featuring my RSC quilt!

  3. A fun explosion of colour & fabrics, love it!

  4. Your quilt is so cheerful and use it makes me dream of spring as well. It sounds like you have many busy days ahead of you, but how rewarding as well. Have a great week and thank you for hosting the link party.

  5. I like bright cheerful colors in winter also. But I also like the lead gray skies and could watch out the window for hours on those days.

  6. Your new quilt is so happy! Just the ticket for the January doldrums.


  7. Another book on the way from you? SQUEAL!!! Can't wait to see it! I had so much fun working on that Heartstrings pattern from your Mini Improv book. Your newest quilt top is delightful; great pattern for all of those gorgeous florals. Happy editing and happy quilting!

  8. Can't wait for the new book! Your quilt top makes me think of summer by the pool.
