Happy Labor Day



Happy Labor Day! Can you believe it is September already? My kids have been in school for two weeks already and I still am amazed at how time flies. It has been crazy busy here (both good and bad crazy) and I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted. I may not have been posting but I have found the time to squeeze a little sewing in. Hallaleulia!!
I started out with a few strips.




Put them together.




Then put an inner border on it. It's getting cuter isn't it! I'll border it today (something pieced of course.) And then it will be ready to be quilted.
What a great way to spend a Monday! Happy quilting!

Love the freshness, looks like taffy to me! Isn't it fun to do a little quilt and see it grow and transpire! Happy Labor day to you too!

Hey Shelly, I've been wondering what happened to you. This is very cute, and it totally goes with that little crochet bag. I hope whatever hard busy stuff has passed.

I love how all those strips look offset down the center of that quilt, especially with the prints zig-zagging down through the pinks. Very cool!
