In the company of “rich”…

You remember this, don’t you?

I have been in nearly constant company of fabrics lately because of impending deadlines, some rich fabrics. Don’t you just love that rich red among the other colors? I have to say that red fabric is probably one of my very favorites!! This will be the last sneak-preview before the quilt is officially featured in “The Quilter”‘s March 2009 Issue:

Fabrics and what we make with them enrich our lives in many ways, historically and presently. They sort of tie eras of history together as each era emphasizes a different aspect of fabric art that is slightly different than the other eras. My fabric pursuits have largely been influenced by the rich history that is associated with the early American history. Last night I had a most enjoyable phone conversation with Judy Morton, chair of the Old Tippecanoe Block Challenge. She told me about how she too have been inspired by the rich history of America in her quilting pursuits. She is an amazing hand quilter – one of her quilts is featured in the “Photo Finish” of “The Quilter“‘s Christmas Issue. She has done the applique all by hand:

Okay, I need to get back in the company of more fabrics… (you will see what I mean in tomorrow’s post). I wish you all a wonderful day, rich with blessings! Till next time!
