Jun 09: I showed this panel to my friend, Cecelia Fares. I know her from church & she is active on Facebook.Thought we had lost her & her husband recently when the home they were renting sold out from under them but they are back. YES! Cecelia has been a career nurse, is a natural beauty and a very personable woman. I liked her instantly. She is part of our after mass Sunday morning breakfast crew. And she is the partner on this quilt. Her response as we got into it was simple: the panel, purple, king size.
Jun 12: Over several days I made my way through my process. This is Cecelia's final plan. Purple batik fabric has been ordered from Ye Olde Forest Online Quilt Shop. The gold & the solid purple are on the way from Fabric.com. Still working on a layout for the IQ patterns. Quilt size is still to be determined by how much drop Cecelia wants. For now it is 90x100.
Jun 14: The panel is here from Wing and a Prayer Design. I like the first IQ layout above. Cecelia liked it from the get-go.
Jun 16: The gold fabric and the purple backing fabric are here. The gold has speckles like angel dust. The purple photographs as blue. Maybe later.
Jun 19: All the fabrics are in. I couldn't have gotten a better backing color match if I had been standing in a quilt shop. YES! The purple batik and the solid backing are rather stiff so I am going to prewash. The gold is quite nice to the touch.
