 I had hoped to get some sewing accomplished this weekend.  We got snow and I looked forward to spending long hours in my sewing room.  You know what they say: best laid plans often go astray.  I didn’t get to finish this charity quilt above.  I cleaned house instead, getting ready for company for the Thanksgiving holiday.

I did want to show you the blocks I’ve been working on.  Did you notice that the centers are all of made fabric?  I placed them on black fabric to see if that is what I want to use for the sashing.  I think it is, don’t you?

This is a close up of one of the blocks so you can see the made fabric center block.

A lot of exciting happenings are going on at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this week.  Have you signed up for Craft Day?  That is always loads of fun.  If you can't come to the one this Saturday, you can register for the one on Friday, Dec. 4.  Craft Day is always a mystery as to what we will be making.  That's one of the things that make it so much fun.

Oh! Striking quilt, Caroll! Especially with the black. Yes, I think you should sash with black. Love the made fabric centers. The blocks are gorgeous!
