Another Top

While pottering around in the sewing room yesterday afternoon tracing some little stitcheries for pincushions, I came across Scrappy Simplicity.  All that needed to be done to finish off this quilt top was sew on two borders, which were already made.  So, I did that and the top is now finished.




I've darkened the last two photos a bit to enhance the pinwheels - the colours are so soft and pretty.  I'm finding it difficult to photograph them well.  I love this quilt top and am so happy with how it's turned out considering it came from a pile of little flying geese cut offs and a bagful of scraps.

One blog I love to read is Pretty by Hand.  I love how Kristyne expresses herself, what she makes and her great sense of fun.  Her last message is about the cost of quilting and, according to her philosophy, this quilt top has cost me nothing.  I agree.

Your quilt looks great - I haven't looked at her blog yet, but I save heaps on therapy by sewing, patching and quilting!! We won't mention how much the latter three cost, but that's beside the point :D

And didn't cost anything too? Perfect. Going to pop over and see how that works.

Very pretty Lynda - the dark pink sashings really sets the quilt off.
