Several days ago, I got a package in the mail from Jane's Fabrics. This package was a prize that I was fortunate enough to win. The contest was hosted by Terri at Sew-Fantastic. There were a three prizes given and each one entering was asked to pick the one he/she desired. The third one shown immediately called to me. "OH YES!" I said to myself, "I want that one!"
So enter, I did. I was shocked and thrilled a few days later to find that I had won!
Before the fabric arrived, I had gone back and looked at it several times. I realized exactly why it called to me. Several years ago, I painted a painting that hangs in my bedroom. On an abstract background I joyously painted huge tulips. The tulips are yellow and reddish orange. The background is purple, green and blue. There is a red section that runs thru the painting also.
So, this lovely fabric has a blue background and has flowers on it in red, blue and yellow. There are tulips also. The border print has a nice red section also. No wonder I wanted it, it matches my painting. (okay, it sort of matches.)
I made a pair of pillowcases from the bulk of this fabric, but I have some left for piecework. Joy, Happy!
Here is a picture of the painting (named Transcend, by the way) and one pillowcase.
