Welcome to my blog.

Welcome to my world - mostly the fabric world that I escape to whenever I have time. Hope you enjoy it and please feel free to comment.....

Big sewing day today.  I must have sat at the machine from eight thirty this morning till one thirty but I was determined not to budge till I had finished all the blocks for this quilt.  This is my Tree of Joy quilt for a special 17 year old girl.  Since getting this far I have made one more block and so now it will be four by four.  As soon as I finished it I raced out and bought the fabric for the borders and binding.  Now I just need to settle on the backing - no ideas what I am going to do for that - too many choices basically!  I have also pieced two smaller stars to make potholders and am hoping to make some place mats.  This is the first time I have used so much white in a quilt and I keep seeing it in so many quilts online these days that I just had to try it and you know what?  I really like it!

Must be bedtime.  Good Night.
