Sewing with Wine: The Flight Across [WIP Wednesday Oct 12, 2011]

Last Day to Enter: MRL 55 Followers Fun Giveaway visit here.

Last night I had a beautiful dinner with the Mr. in the fancy restaurant in town.  Yes, there is allegedly only one fancy restaurant here, middle of nowhere remember?  A bottle of red wine later and a full belly later I came home determined to finish this quilt top before we left for our friend's wedding today.  At first I hesitated...should I really be sewing after drinking?  Hahahahaa I said to myself... let's do this.  

Voila!  She is done!  And named - The Flight Across.

And yes, I forced the Mr. to go outside in the rain so I could take pictures this morning!  Hahahahaa...do you see the rain splatter?

The Flight Across
The Flight Across: Kona Raisin, Echino, Loluca, Melody Miller's Ruby Star Rising
In retrospect the name symbolizes so much going on in our lives right now, we are definitely flying across  life ourselves and learning new things about our lives and our goals.  This is such a different quilt style for me, so minimal, so much solid, so modern.  Purple?  So not Rebecca Lynne and yet I can't wait to quilt her, fold her up, and use her over and over again.  Personally I LOVE it.  She's a keeper.

Must hop offline now to finish up other things before leaving for our next wedding.  Oh, for those keeping track VEIL IS DONE!!!  Beading looks awesome...

Linking up to Freshly Pieced - do check out the other amazing things going on over there...

I know my best friend wrote PURPLE?? For years she has tried to get me to the purple side...whatever you guys did worked!

Becky said...

It's brilliant Rebecca!! Can't wait to see it quilted :) I really like the design and that bee is awesome! The purple works SO well :)

Melinda said...

I love it! That color is so gorgeous. Am I remembering Raisin correctly? And Honey, you have already heard my views on wine and FMQ. It only makes it better!

Kristen said...

It's looking gorgeous in the dark purple! I love the dragonfly print!

Sandra Kaye said...

Rebecca-- really love the wine color. I like the way your piece seems to just float. Hugs-- How are your quilties coming. Mail out is this Saturday. Don't forget :o)

103?! WooHoo!! Party @ your house!! Been missing your posts/comments, etc. Sounds like you've been crazy busy. I love Flying Across and all of the purple. To be honest, when I saw it unfinished, I couldn't picture it, but now I see it and it will look great quilted!! Looking forward to the PAL. In my world PALS stands for Pediatric Advanced Life Support. I like that PAL stands for @ MRL better! MUCH better. :) Safe travels to the wedding.. email me sometime (with all your spare time. haaha)

Annaliese said...

Ahh! I am so proud, girl! Trying something new, and making a deadline?? You're a beast! Have a GREAT time at your friends wedding! oh, and there is totally nothing wrong with enjoying some wine before sewing, it makes the seams straighter! (says the girl who sews while medicated) :)

Woa, this is fabulous! Gosh, wow. Ok, I'm a sucker for purple, but I think what I'm really diggin is the way you laid out the fabrics. Nicely done!
