Gardenias are one of my favourite flowers. This seems to be a good year for them in my front flower bed and not only can I open the windows in the morning and drink in their fragrance over my morning tea but I have them floating in bowls around the house.
Marie brought a show and tell quilt top over Sunday evening. (Marie is my late night window tapper friend - remember the Redwork Quilt top (for Empty Bowls) that she brought over to my home for a "viewing" after she had finished piecing it.) It is the Bethlehem Star or also known as the Lone Star. She made it out of her scrap stash and it is really fun to look at.
I think you will enjoy looking at her accomplishment as much as I did!
It's an adventure looking at it and seeing what scraps she used and hearing the stories about the bits and pieces she found. Things like I had a fat eighth of this and a fat quarter of that.
When I grow up I want to piece like Marie and Kim. They are MASTERS.
There I knew you would enjoy the pictures.
I hope you are having a peaceful day.
As for me - Oh, My Gosh - peaceful it will not be,
BUT - IT IS GOING TO BE FUN!
Why, Thelma and Louise are hitting the road to visit one of the Top Eleven Q Shops as written about in the Spring/Summer 2010 QUILT SAMPLER.
Thank you for stopping by - I do enjoy your visits.
