Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

I just felt I had to

I had all kinds of other things that I should have been doing, but I was trying to organize my sewing space and got distracted by a pile of charm squares.  A very quick and easy top was put together yesterday, and I quilted and bound it today.  Success!

Now, to try and get back to making some headway in my sewing space...

Hope you're having a good summer, with lots of fun and some sewing thrown in!

Happy quilting!

Really... Your quilting is just breathtakingly beautiful. I am amazed at how you can take a simple patchwork piece and make it into something sew spectacular! Hope you don't mind... I just have to share this on my facebook page with a link back at http://facebook.com/sewfreshquilts

That looks amazing! But I do know about the sewing space dilema. Getting sidetracked is the easiest thing to do.
