Sewing Party Update

Mail delivery during the party! (Judy, your quilt top arrived too)


Woo Hoo! On a roll with borders; even slipped out for my hair appt. (bet you didn't notice)

My scraps are all squared up and those birds will be delighted with these tidbits for their nest.

Love that quilt! I have to get that book - I am going to want to make that one, too :)
Do you really scatter your scraps for the birds? I love that idea!

Your quilt top looks great, love the colors. I looked for Kim's book today and couldn't find it - I may have to order it online.

You are so good - I piece my left over triangles also but never square them up. So they sit in my big jar looking very scary.

Your border turned out great! I bet the birds will love the treat you have for them!

Karen said...

I think nest building season is a ways off yet the way this winter is going. Time to cut lots more scraps for the birds.

The border really is the finishing touch on that quilt! Well, then there is the quilting!

Gene Black said...

Good job!!!

I need to remember to save the shavings type scraps for the birds too.

Lynn said...

A sewing party! I love the border on the quilt. Perfect choice of pattern and color to go with the rest of the quilt. I'm looking forward to seeing your beautiful quilting on it!

Needled Mom said...

Wow...you got a lot done...and a haircut too!!!

Lovely! And I like the thought of saving bitty scraps for the birds.

KatieQ said...

Your quilt top looks great. I can't believe you managed to get so much done and still slip out to keep your hair apt. I sewed along yesterday too, but got so focused I forgot to post.

Anna said...

you put your little snips and threads out for the birds - what a sweet idea!! I'm going to do that too from now on - the birds here thank you, and I thank you!
