In Rapture : :

Rapture Quilt Making

I've been waiting a few weeks now for the right time to cut into my Rapture bundle, the latest and incredibly beautiful collection by designer Pat Bravo. As soon as this bundle arrived I had sketched out my plan, but with how unusually busy and stressful these last few weeks have been for me, all of my quilting plans kept getting pushed back a little further and further. In these cold February days, with plenty of white and grey outside the door, it's most definitely easy to feel a little gloomy at this point. And so it became a must...it was time, finally, for Rapture!

Rapture Quilt Plans!

rap·ture /ˈrapCHər/ noun 1. a feeling of intense pleasure or joy. synonyms: bliss, elation, joy, enchantment, delight, happiness, pleasure, and more.

Those words sound lovely, so much better than their antonyms: unhappiness, despair, gloom, dislike, sorrow, etc.. And the colors of Rapture , SO pretty & refreshing!

Pretty Rapture!

Love the touches of black!

Rapture PE Solids

Such pretty scraps!

Amidst all the cold and the snow, these sometimes dreary days, and the amount of work I've yet to do, I'm extra appreciative to have this project to work on when I need it, to bring me joy, and to keep me smiling this week!

In the morning

Wishing you all February joys and a lovely new week!     Maureen

  17. Such lovely colours :) Reading your post this morning reminded me of a collection of poems called 'Rapture' by Carol Ann Duffy and sent me to the bookcase to read a few favourites. Highly recommend a little poetry reading for relaxation!
