Quilting Booklady had some left over fabric that she shared with me that was a part of the same line. I used it for the wide red paisley border, and found a piece that blended with it for the yellow inner border. I have a quilt out of this line, Gingham Rose on the bed in my guest bedroom, this will probable end up as a lap quilt in that bedroom. I am inspired now to finish something else on my UFO list. Wish me luck.

I am so far behind in my many BOM's, that I decided this long weekend was the perfect time to catch up. I have at least made a start. Here is the February Country Threads Block of the Month. Now it is on to Dixie Diary, and to get caught up on Grandmother's Choice from Barbara Brackman. I don't know where the time has gone, I can't believe that it is the middle of February, the year is already flying by. This is a long weekend for the school system. Friday was a snow day so I was able to go to Thimbles. It was great to spend the day with friends sewing. I worked on Odd's and Ends from Primitive Gatherings. I hope to finish it soon, I have been working on it way to long. I also want to get back to East Street and Shh Don't tell, both are mystery quilts that I am very behind on.
