First a correction!! In my last post I showed a lap quilt with this text:
This is a little lap quilt I use sometimes when I'm working at the computer, it gets a bit chilly in the room I work in. It's a bit frayed around the edges because they've been "loved off."
Does it look sort of familiar?? Just saying! ;o)
Just to be clear, when Madame Samm created my banner, she didn't model it after a quilt I own! The design for my banner came 100% from the ideas in her head, the kindness of her heart, and the talent in her fingers! When I showed my quilt it was to reinforce why I'm still in awe when I see my banner. She had no way of knowing that I even use a lap quilt when I'm working, or the color, or the way I wore my hair ... I tell you it's truly amazing! :o)

And now, to the "crummy" part of my post!
I pieced the blocks I showed earlier into bigger blocks and even bigger blocks to make a large block for the background of my brown bag quilt:
It still doesn't look like much but better days are coming, LOL. That's all I'll show on this one for awhile, have to wait til it's prettier!
Last year I participated in a shoe block swap, here are a few of the ones I got:
what's not to like about these cute ballet slippers!!?
and this slipper... tres magnifique!
this shoe was made for serious partying!
I did this one; that's netting around the top.
Sew forth and sew on til later!
