My backside

/ Friday 12 November 2010 /
Diamond backsides
I should properly say "my quilt's backside", shouldn't I?  I hope you didn't think I would inflict photos of any other backside on you!

I have been so very busy with work that I've had very little time to do any sewing.  I am working on a draft framework for a set of curriculum guidelines for preservice teacher education in literacy.  My deadline is rapidly approaching - I can actually count it in hours.  So I've not had my machine up and going in ages, but I have managed to get a bit of work done on my hand-sewing project, just to keep my sanity intact.
And I have been sick - I blame my brother, who brought exotic Kiwi germs all the way from New Zealand to infect me with.  I'm feeling loads better today, thank goodness.  And have a look at these:
Marcia Derse fabric
Remember when I came back from the Creativ Festival in Toronto with that set of Marcia Derse fat quarters?  The first thing I did was scour the internet to see if I could find some more.  I did find some here.  So I ordered a bunch.  Look how gorgeous.

And she has another line coming out soon - evidently she was at Market, and a couple of people have blogged about her fabric.  I think this one will be the best yet - there are lots of rich reds in it - and you can see it best here.  Yum yum!
Also - in case you are also an AMH junkie like me, Fabricworm now has both the velveteens and voiles for Innocent Crush.  Just saying.....
Beth asked a good question below, so I edited this post to add a link to show what the front of the hand-pieced project looks like - it's more or less the same, only a bit bigger now!

i have a soft spot for the backside too. (that doesn't sound good does it? you know what i mean). that's where you see all the WORK, all the cutting, all the threads. I can tell, even from this point of view, that your quilt is just gorgeous!

It's all too luscious. Good luck with your work "stuff."

Oh my word, look at all those pieces in that gorgeous quilt. The backside ain't too shabby, wither. ;) As with so many of your projects, the colors are bright and cheery and just so happy. Love the sets of FQ's too!
