WIP Wednesday - Happy Mother's Day to me!

Can I brag just for a minute? Okay? Great! I got an awesome Mother's Day present. Some studio time! Himself twin wrangled and I sewed.... after I chowed down on pancakes and bacon. Yum! It gave me a chance to finish almost all of the Star Point on Technicolor Galaxy. The purple zone really needed some help... I took Val's advice and dumped all evidence of mauve. Here's the before....
 I picked up these (Purple, Midnight, Eggplant) to fix the problem.
 And the after shot. Complete with the Sangria edged Star Point that needed some attention as well.
I even got the low volume and print points done... all but one. I'm having trouble finding the right transition fabric to get me from dark red to plum. MMQGers, help!
Speaking of MMQG, it's the last day of our Meet Maritime Modern Blog Hop. Insert sad face here. I've had lots of fun learning new things about my guildmates and admiring their fabulous quilts. Today's blogger/quilter is no exception. Aimee from Candy Coated Quilts isn't making your grandmother's quilts... unless your grandma knew what a pixel is and really digs Big Bang Theory!

  1. Oh, I really like the purple woodgrain fabric - yum! I'm glad you were able to get your point fixed to your liking, and I hope the next bit gets resolved quickly, too.

  2. Sewing time is always such a good gift, isn't it? :) Nice progress, glad you're getting things tweaked to how you like!

  3. Any idea of what colour you're looking for to do the transition? I can take a look. Sounds like it was a great Mother's Day.

  4. yay for sewing time! love the change in purples too. Way vibrant!

  5. Hooray for Pancakes and Bacon!!! Oh... And sewing time on Mother's Day. So glad you got those new purples. They are rockin' those points now!
