Fini, Finito, Finished!

Another "flimsy" done! This is an easy peasy quilt but I really like it. I made one for a friend's birthday last Fall and vowed that I'd make one for me. Sixteen Yuletide Blessing fat quarters, by Fig Tree Quilts, cut into 2 1/2" strips. Pattern is Fields of Flowers by Pieces From My Heart.

I've made another little promise to myself but I'm not ready to say it out loud for the whole world to hear me. LOL I'll let you know when and if I fulfill my promise.

Need to start thinking about the next project - hand applique, embroidery, or more piecing! Decision, decisions. LOL

Thanks for stopping by - come again!

In Friendship!
