What does Cotton Candy, Christmas Paisley and Dutch have to do with quilting???

Have you ever sent an email to a wrong person??  Well, that's what I did earlier today, but I did it big!!!  I sent the email to a group, not just one, several people!! Yep, not just one person, but an entire guild!!  Of course it made absolutely no sense to them and I've had a couple of people ask "what does Cotton Candy have to do with quilting?".  Here's the email that I sent to the group (slightly changed-I checked my spelling and corrected a couple of errors that I noticed AFTER I hit the send key).  Well, here is the email and  what Cotton Candy has to do with quilting.....

Hi Ladies,
I've added a couple of quilts that I have recently. I used "Cotton Candy" on one, and my customer LOVES it!! She is a new quilter and the design allowed a little room to move some of the "extra" that comes with slightly wavy borders. She loves the back as much as she does the front. I used a dark thread that blends well with the front, but jumps out on the plain muslin backing.




Second is the "Christmas Paisley". Again I used a completely blending thread (at customer's request) and the quilt is going to have some beautiful texturing after it's washed!! LOVE IT!! Very subtle Christmas design.




Lastly I wanted to share the "Dutch" design that I used. This is a cheater quilt made way-back-when, but was part of my customer's UFO pile. Using Dutch it brings out the printed motif on the fabric and gave her a beautiful backing that she can be proud of!!




Thanks for looking, love to hear what you think!!

That's what Cotton Candy has to do with quilting....it's the name of the quilting design from Anne Bright where I get most of the quilting designs that I use. This message was supposed to go to the Anne Bright Yahoo group, I sent it to the Northern Lights Quilting Guild group. Think I've got too many irons in the fire?  Maybe....lol!!

I do see things slowing a tad and I've had time to check in with a few of you blogging gals.  Love all of the fun stuff you guys are doing, but what's up with Blogger??  Am I the only one having issues with posting comments??  Can you say annoying???

Okay, that's it for today! I'm thinking I've done enough!  I've got more quilts
to share so stay tuned!!

thanks for checking on me,
hugs,
joanne

love to hear what you've got to say.......

Beautiful quilting, as usual, girl! Too funny about sending it to the wrong group, lol. I've not had any trouble commenting, maybe keep your "remember me" box unchecked?

Funny - thanks for sharing - and THAT does mean you have too many things going on in your brain all at once! :)
Yes, I've had blogger issues also - no pics can be added, responding to comments, etc. Seems better today, but totally frustrating!

Love your works, Joanne, the second quilt is very beautiful! And you're right: the backing of the last one ..... very nice!
Two days ago i've had some problems in posting comments: they disappeared once written! But today seems to be ok. Take care, Clara.
