Fellow quilters...

Sometimes you see something a quilting buddy is working on and you get inspired!

That I did...
My friend Paula from Groovy Girls was at the Terry Atkinson test class
and chose to use the bright wovens on a navy linen look background.
It had a more modern feel to it....AND...It was stunning!!!!

So, for Groovy Girls next week I need to use the
Texas Two Step pattern by Terry Atkinson
and at the shop they have a whole line of bright stripes!

How could I not try the color combo for myself??

This is what I left the shop with:

And of course I just HAD to get it cut out last night!!!!
Then I looked at the clock and thought "Hey...I can sew on it a little! It's only 9:30!"
Then before too long I had all the rows put together ...

and some of the rows sewn to other rows
then I was exhausted and had to go to bed!

Good thing I called it a night when I did because as you can see,
 the third row from the right needs to be flipped over!
I don't think I would have caught that!!!

The colors are growing on me....
not my usual though!!

I had a little stripe envy myself after seeing Paula's pick! Looking forward to the two step!
