not twiddling my thumbs!

My MIL received this last week and I heard that half the neighborhood has seen it!!!  Kudos to you Teri;P  Pleased that you have fallen in love with it!

I am trying to discover the perfect name for this quilt.  It was a quilt out of my comfort zone of color selections.  Over the moon with the results though.  Kinda reminds me of a bowl off jellybeans too pretty to eat.

Reversible for sure and the Central Park was screaming to be at the center of attention!!

Sorry purple goodness---I had to get a move on this tree skirt!  I was itching to anyhow!

2 trees done and 6 to go!  They are quite fun to create.  I had some scraps on hand and then I purchased some Ruby in green and red for the trees and red border.
I can't get enough footage of these guys!!!

The designer Carol Turznik over at Mamacjt keeps telling me not to scream when I get to the binding.....well Carol I am going to count on you for some assistance then perhaps with a few other references.  Maybe Krista over at PoppyPrint and possibly youtube to the rescue!

I just love that tree skirt you're working on! I have faith that you will triumph over any anxiety about the binding. It'll be just fine.

The purples and golds remind me of irises, one of my favorite flowers!

Love the quilts!
The tree skirt is going to be such a great project. If you dread the binding that much, just remember that if you have too much trouble with it you can always just sew a facing on at the edges and not have a binding at all.

I saw that pattern and had to slap my hand - no more purchases this year! Bias binding is not that frightful - you can to it.
