TO FINISH IS DIVINE

On the Seven Stitches blogspot there is a motto: To Quilt Is Human To Finish is Divine. Yes! Perfect. Who doesn't feel a sense of Divineness when completing something you have spent time on and put your heart and soul into. This English Paper Pieced quilt was started over 5 years ago and is finally Finished! Check out the English Paper Piecing classes at the Attic Window. It's a nice carry-with-you, pick-up-and-go project.


Fandango (below) is an upcoming class. Make these colonial scrap baskets into a table topper, wall-hanging, or quilt. It is an easy task to show your skills in making this striking block. An easy pieced border is just the ticket for this marvelous quilt.
The fun thing about making these wonky houses is you don't need industrial strength antiacids to complete a block. Just have fun with it.



New Charm Square packs in at the shop. While thinking about what to do with them, we found another interesting site. All you "crazy" stitchers and those in Colleen's new Bee must stop by Ivory Blush Roses and see the beautiful pincushion using old CDs. Very clever and a great way to practice all those fancy stitches.
Until next time Happy Quilting!
