It's Quilted!

I picked up my quilt yesterday.  Thank you to Gwynette in NW Arkansas for giving me the inspiration of using variegated green thread, it was perfect!

I don't always have an idea of what pattern or thread I want to use until I get to the quilter and see what they have to offer.

I had seen this pattern on another quilt and knew this had to be it, especially where I couldn't get it out of my head!

I do tend to go for colors that are bright (like me!) but I know I would have looked at purple first so I appreciate having the idea of green - saved me oodles of time!  I think the person helping me pick out the thread thought I was nuts because she pulled all purples and sort of shrugged when I pulled green.  I think I saw another small shrug when I poo-poohed the purples she had and proudly announced it was the green I wanted.

Unfortunately, she wasn't there when I picked up the quilt because I was hoping to hear her reaction when she unfolded it for me.  Luckily, I had three other on-lookers who all said "oooh - love the green".  I just love that ooooh moment - such a good feeling!
