Quote Quilt Sunday #’s 66-

072 # 66   “Pink is my Signature Color”

Can any of you tell me which movie this quote is from? Her wedding colors were “Blush and Bashful” Her mother said it was pink and pink and that it looked like pepto bismal had been thrown up all over the church.

I remember being in a movie at the theater and seeing the commercial for this movie that was going to be released soon. I was in Junior high. I knew I was going to see it and once I did it became one of my favorites. I still watch it pretty regularly to this day. I can quote it. A local high school did this as a play when my oldest daughter was still in school and I dragged her and her friend to the play….amazingly enough those high school girls did a beautiful job portraying the ladies.  Any clue yet?

Yes, it’s Steel Magnolias.

Pink is my favorite color …it truly is. So I pulled this quote from the movie because it’s suitable to me. and you will notice that I used pink thread …it will be the only splash of color in the quilt. Which is ok by me. after all it’s my signature color.

“She couldn’t keep her colors inside the lines….So she drew new lines”

I saw this on fb and thought it was perfect for me. I am accused of creating my own path and I am ok with that. I have learned to stay inside the box when I have to…and when left to my own devices I don’t even know what a box is….

drawing new lines is a perfect way to discover our true selves and accept us.

“There MUST be a limit to the mistakes one person can make and when I get to the end of them, then I’ll be through with them. That’s a very comforting thought.”

Do you all know who said this? She is perhaps one of my most quotable characters..yes it’s Anne with an “e” Shirley.  Anne of Green Gables. I think i just relate so much to her….and I have to agree that it’s a very comforting thought ….to be at the end of my mistakes…LOL. To bad I am probably not even a fraction of the way through them!!

I hope you all have a great day!

I only have 26 more quotes to go and I can start putting this quilt together. I am trying to figure out my layout….I kind of wanted to add some sashings and buttons ect. But it may be to big for me to get to crazy with that. So I am working up some ideas in EQ to see what I can come up with. We shall see.

but I have to say I am really excited to be this close.

many blessings
