Joy Luck
July Schnibbles
I kept procrastinating about making the July's Schnibbles quilt, Joy Luck because I couldn't decide on fabric. Silliness, I know! Last night I walked into my sewing room at approximately 9:00PM and dug out two Blush charm packs and some Bella yardage. Started cutting and then sewed until 4:00AM this morning - LOL - gotta love a second wind. :-) I just finished the outer border so it's done - woohoo!!! Bring on the August assignment - I'm RED-DEE!!!


Enjoy your week end - I am! :-) I appreciate your visit and your comments. Come again soon.

In Friendship!

Stephanie said...

I think seeing Blush used in projects makes it look so much prettier than sitting in a charm pack. I love Joy Luck.
