and so far I've managed to avoid the garage...LOL. I had so much fun making up the two little quilts on Tuesday evening, I decided to play again last evening..*VBS*
I added some very random borders to the little pink one, and cut a backing and batt for it. Since the blocks I received were heavily starched, I decided to machine quilt that one. Having done that, I pulled out a little pile of 'stuff' and created another little quilt...
using just what was in the pile and a few strips from the 1.5" bin(which I had out to use for borders on the pink one)I added spacers where needed. It seemed pretty wild, color wise, but a choice of pale yellow for borders calmed it down completely. Got a backing and batt cut for it, and today I am hand quilting it with perle cotton. What fun!! Totally no purpose to any of it...LOLAnd then today's mail brought me two surprises! This is a blog-a-versary block from Cher at Marathon Quilter(see sidebar). Love the butterflies and the colors Cher! It's very special and it will always remind me of you *VBS*. My other surprise was a package from Sandy at Rabbit Stitching(see sidebar). I won her blogaversary drawing! Wow! What a great package Sandy *VBS* I'll share the contents tomorrow....for now, I'm just soaking up all their gifty goodness!!!!!
Phebe - I love applique!
