To Treasure or Charity?

I have got myself into a real mess - fabrics everywhere looking for x's and +'s - to cut into bigger pieces or not? ... anyhow, while ratting through boxes I came across this 'old' flimsy made by our group Birds of a Feather in Brisbane - no that's not what it was called - tell me Christine! I could make this into a long story - trust me, I won't! Those were the days when I didn't get to quilting before I started on another project - I'm just a little better these days. I thought 'now that's a nice charity quilt' - how wicked, and now it is growing on me very quickly and the puppies need a new quilt for their spot on the lounge beside me - guess what I am going to do?


Closeup!

Sticking to my promise to myself - I can't quite get perfection on joining those seams, though I am improving, I think, lol!



So delicate, so beautiful ... lots of beautiful buds are about to burst open - what a beautiful time of year!Happy weekend!

PS - just remembered - of course! - our group in Brisbane was Kindred Spirits - thanks Christine, lol!

Dare I admit that I have started a quilt with charity in mind, and then couldn't part with it cause I loved it so.

I love the colors and pattern of this quilt. A treasure for sure and I would keep it close if I were you. When others ask what am I going to do with "yet another quilt", I reply that I will keep it until it is worthy of being given away. Enjoy the season. Judy C

Oh, I think you should finish your quilt for your puppies. It's a wonderful quilt. Love your X blocks. Since going back to work, I haven't had any spare time for quilting... Or blogging. I need to make some changes to this all-about-work schedule. LOL
