Lucy, my project for this years Journeys Thru Art challenge, was accepted. Awesome! I had been wanting to do a Lucy quilt for a while now, and when Journeys decided on Famous Female Faces I knew I'd be making a Lucy quilt. I went back and forth between different techniques and kept coming back to using purple. I ordered a yardage bundle of Cherrywood Hand-Dyed Fabrics in the eggplant gradation colorway. My friend asked why I chose purple, and I just blurted out "it was Lucy's favorite color" - I had no idea of this, I was joking. Then my curiosity got the best of me and after a little google research I found out that purple was one of her favorite colors so it turned out pretty cool!
So here's Lucy (I still need to square and put the binding on):
And do you know who else is going to MQX New England?... ME! I'll be teaching!! A couple of my hands-on classes have sold out, and space is limited in my others, so go check it out soon!! Will I see you there?
