Lights, Camera, Action!

This is is a quilt top that I've finished this week. It's going to be a gift for my friend Katy who is a working actress in Hollywood (waving to you Kate!). I thought of her as soon as I saw this fabric collection. The fabric line is called "Lights, Camera, Action!" designed by Gail Kessler for Andover Fabrics. It was quick to make up, and somewhat of a fun challenge. The large center focal block is pieced on the diagonal using the focus fabrics in the two colorways. Matching up the pictures was quite "interesting", but they give good directions and I'm pretty happy with the outcome. The popcorn block rows are pieced, but the other borders are just fussy cut strips from the fabric line. The pattern is a free download from Andover's website and we have the fabric and kits for the quilt in our shop.

I even had some fun with the shop display last night. I found a little mock Oscar statue at the mall and we made up fat quarter popcorn bags ~ I have way too much fun at work :)

Don't know how much work I'll get done today, I've taken the day off to take my son to get his wisdom teeth pulled this morning and I'll be playing nurse this afternoon. We are well stocked in pudding, Ice Cream and video games, so hopefully all will go smoothly!

Enjoy the day!

Can't wait to see the display - the pic looks great! Hope Bobby does ok, sounds like a good "hand-work" kind of day.
