And So It Begins


And so it begins, or at least it continues.  I started this little tree block in New York when I went to visit Victoria.

Didn't it turn out cute?  It is based on this block from an antique quilt Victoria bought in Houston two years ago.

And yes I was with her when she bought it.  I have always LOVED this quilt. I thought about how to "accidentally" pack it in my bag to come home with me.  But truthfully, I love V more than I love this quilt and I can just make myself one.  So I am!!!


Have a great weekend and Happy Sewing!

I think she wanted to tackle me to the ground for it, but she was sweet as pie, and let me take it home... She can visit it anytime she wants!
