And the Winner is...

"Black Tie Event"

Last week I put out a request looking for suggestions on what to name this black & white quilt. There were so many creative suggestions that poured in from all directions, it was difficult to narrow down all the possibilities. Taking into consideration the purpose of this quilt (I know.... you all weren't privy to that part) I thought, "Black Tie Event" best described both the quilt and the occasion for it.  I'll be able to show a full set of pictures once it's been delivered. Until then here's a sneak peak.....

A Sneak Peak

Next up on the project list is a commissioned piece, I'm using Caroline's Chain Pattern, Designed by Cyndi Hershey and found in the January/February 2012 edition of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting. This pattern uses the Irish Chain Block and utilizes strip piecing to make quick work of the piecing process.

Ready to do some strip piecing.
The fabric for this quilt is from the Simple Pleasures Collection by Debbie Beaves of Violet Patch Quilts. These fabrics play better together in person than in the photo. For this project I even have the joy of working with one of my favorite colors, purple. So much fun!! I'm looking forward to some very productive hours at the machine over the next few days. Hope your weekend is filled with joy, fun and some productive time as well!!

Blessings &
