To avoid thread difficulties on the longarm, I don't think I want to use a batik for the backing. So I'm trialing this floral and will see how it looks.
The pattern I'm going to use is something like this Bento Box pattern that I saw a few years back at the MQX quilt show in New Hampshire. I ordered a panto pattern from Willow Leaf Design called Rhapsody to quilt on it. But yesterday saw a batik quilt with a dragonfly quilting pattern that looked like even more fun. So may have to check that out. If I knew how to put the links in here with just the names and no long address, it would be nice so you could easily check them out...but I'm sorry I haven't figured that out yet.
Allie and Dave have Chili Pepper Red in their living room. Though I've never actually seen the room, I'm hoping it fits in.
The colors sure perk me up. We're celebrating my own DH's birthday today so it's a good time to be perky.
