I would say this quilt was indeed the result of a stroke of serendipity:
*First I asked American Patchwork if I could do a project for them for early next year.
*They happened to have an opening.
*I got my strikeoffs from Elizabeth's Letters about 3 months earlier than expected.
*The quilt I designed used just a little fabric from each pattern.
*We had to make a few color adjustments, so I had a second batch of strike-offs, resulting in just enough of the one pattern I needed more of.
*I had recently purchased just enough of a nice fabric that caught my eye-- I used it for background.
*I didn't have enough of any of my greens to do all the vines, so I went looking, and found this great little green stripe in just the right color.
*There was even some available at the distributor so I could order enough for kits.
*I got the quilt done just in time to send it to my sister-in-law, Tori (That's So Quilt!) to long arm it.
*She got it done and back to me in 3 days, including shipping.
*I sent it off to APQ today for it's photo shoot tomorrow!!!
