Red Toile

"If your name is Jillien and you are my sister, stop reading.  Kay?"

*     *     *     *     *

Not my usual offering here, I know ... all this red.  And it's not even Christmas or Valentines. 

Or strawberries. ;)

But I happen to know someone who adores red toile.

"Sister, if you're still reading this, no you are NOT the someone I just mentioned and no this is NOT for you.  This is NOT your late birthday present that I promised you a few months ago ... even though this red toile fabric looks EXACTLY like the one I asked if you liked when you were here visiting ... just sayin'."

So if it isn't for your sister then it must be for one of your toile-loving readers, right?! I've been wanting to make a quilt with toile, ticking, English roses and tartan for quite ahwile. I'm sure that that not-your-sister will love this.

Awe your poor sister is now going to be wondering who you're giving the fabric she picked to! :(

Adorable and Pretty! Thanks for the giggles. Someone, not your sister, is going to be very happy.
Such beautiful fabric and I bet you've got a gorgeous plan for it too. I'm kinda wishing my name was Jillien right now! ;)

One of the things I really love about your blog Kristyne, is that you start off with gorgeous fabrics, some lovely thread...and then you make it into something glorious! I wish I had your gift, because I have lots of gorgeous fabric too, but until I bought your book with lots of great ideas in it, I didnt know what to DO with it!
Thanks for your continued inspiration!!! And as mentioned by everyone else above...if your not-for-your-sister mystery is not for your sister (!!!) then a Reader giveaway or ten would be great!!!! Best wishes..Barb.
