Fall scrap quilt
I'm baaaack! Made it through the procedure today and am on with my life.
After a much needed nap this morning/afternoon, I sat down to sew (I couldn't do it earlier, nurse said I had to stay away from machinery - normally that wouldn't stop me from sewing, but I was pretty tired since I've been up since 3:30 this morning.)
So now I'm about to find out how to post a picture. I laid out a few of the fall scrappy nines with the plain back alternate squares. I think I'm going to love it. In fact, I think I'm going to make it much bigger than I originally planned. The border fabric doesn't look quite right, but I think a thin black inner border will help it along. The border fabric has frosted leaves on a black background, although in the picture it may not show that well. The colors are not that great in my house -- this was taken on the basement floor -- the carpet is a light off-white with tan -- looks real yellow in the picture. But good enough for this purpose.
I usually lay a piece of batting over a large hanging quilt in my sewing room and use it as my design wall -- just haven't gotten a round tuit yet!
So what'dya think?
