pantone {purple} progress

First of all, I want to thank you all for your incredibly supportive response to my sweet as honey arrow quilt!  Work/life has taken its toll on my inbox these days so I just wanted to make sure you all were aware of how appreciative I am (as always) of your beautiful support since there's somewhat of an unforgivable lag in my response rate these days.  :(

Fortunately (for my creative sanity), I have managed to scrap together some sewing time as the 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge (here or here) is coming to a close.  Believe it or not, I was going to give feathers a rest until I was asked to fill in for our guild programming on relatively short notice (my new niche).  So after piecing this little number as part of my demo...

I couldn't really get radiant orchid off my mind.

Or midnight-purple (my favoritealso, potentially made up—color).  I actually had (have) two other concepts for radiant-inspired quilts, but one glance at my work calendar pretty much confirmed neither had a chance of materializing before this Friday's deadline.

Still not certain this one is going to make it, but I like to think it's got a decent shot ;o)

Let the countdown begin!


  1. this arrow is just so amazing and Im in love with your colors

  2. What is that scrumptious background fabric near the feathers of your arrow? Soooo yummy!
    In other news, your deadline-pushing sewing stresses me out sometimes. LOL I don't know how you do it! But you always seem to pull it out, so I am gonna trust that this will somehow magically materialize as well. :)

    I love where it's going and can't wait to see more of the reveal!

  3. So fun. Love the deep purple at the Peak of the arrow!

  4. everytime I see your tiny tiny pieces I am feeling pretty normal again, lol. good luck with the deadline!

  5. I'm with Anne on your deadline work stressing ME out! I'm glad you can handle it! Haha, this is looking fabo of course, bohemian chic!

  6. Decent shot, ha! You do amazing things, and this one is so pretty, I'm betting you'll finish in time!

  7. Absolutely love that arrow!!!

  8. I want to steal alllllll your fabrics! I'm thinking of saving some scraps from my AMH stack to make these arrows with....but then I wouldn't be able to make them right away. Gah the indecision!!

  9. Gorgeous as always. I totally forgot about the deadline and I have resigned myself to the fact I will not make it in time. There is always next year right!

  10. You can do it! There are loads of hours between now and then :)
