Looking good

Three things to be happy about:
(1) a magazine worth reading
(2) cold-weather cooking
(3) lightweight down comforters

This is certainly the weather for lightweight down comforters!  Yesterday was downright chilly, and rainy to boot.

Once again, yesterday I had the lead role in  June Cleaver Does Quilting ... I finished piecing the blocks for my new Three-Six-Twelve quilt with African fabrics, and put the top together.  I even put the borders on two sides... take a look!

I arranged the blocks the way I wanted them, but when I used Bonnie's tip for webbing the top, part of the first two rows got twisted around; some of the layout is off, but who can tell?

Miki, I wish I'd seen your comment sooner about using solids, it's a great idea!  All the African fabrics sorta moosh together but it's still pretty.

Thanks everyone for your comments, have a great Monday!

Sew forth and sew on
