Sewing with my gems.

Newer Older

Kelly has us all sewing with our gems. Since you can't take it with you, I decided I'd go ahead and dive into my small Heather Ross stash for a cot size quilt.

I'm going to do a few different projects for thhe My Precious QAL. Have you joined in?

    These are 7" finished charms, sort of between a charm an a layer cake, I guess?

    Thanks everyone. Let me tell you, it felt so good to use these in such a beautiful simple way. I think I've gotten overly competitive with my patchwork. I forgot how much I enjoy simple. Hopefully I can get it bound on Monday!
