A finished top!

Life is still on the hectic side here, and we still have company (adult this time), but I managed to carve out a little time here and there and got this top finished. While far from perfect piecing, I would never have attempted this before the "GO" cutter. It really makes things a lot easier and more accurate. As I have said before... good thing I can quilt halfway decently, because a piecer I'm not!

After quilting, this will go to my oldest granddaughter Kara and she will do the beading. I designed this specifically for quilting and beading. I just love how the batiks 'glow' on that purple background!
So now it goes in the pile to be quilted one day...hopefully not too far away! I also (finally) finished up my postcards, so those will go in the mail tomorrow.

Tonight we're taking our house guest out for dinner. We'll be trying a new crab house that just opened up in town.

Email me!
