Oh about the 20 yards, Amazing Quilts was having a clearance sale. 40% off on a lot of Christmas fabric that wasn't Christmassy. Great for some borders and backings. soooooooo......... Borders and backings I do not have in my stash. so I would I have to buy it anyway. so I get it when I find on sale. I always, buy with a project in mind. I don't buy yardage just because. Almost always! LOL... but this time, with projects in mind!

Shabby Roses Beauty Mystery Qlt: center block prepped, and hand embroidery started.
While up in the mountains I did a lot of sewing, or rather my Mom did. I did some. My mom wanted to start another qlt. Yeah!!! This is her third quilt. she just wanted to sew to squares together. big squares. So I looked in my scrap drawers. my 3 1/2" squares were over flowing. I thought those are big. we will use those! Well, her idea and my idea of big are very different! LOL...
She sewed 900 squares into rows of 3.
Then into 9 patches, then a strip of sashing to one side. Now she has 100 blocks
I finished embroidering the Jan and Nov blocks from the Colorwork pattern. Now I can sew them into little table hangings. this is a big project! I think I have 3 months done from the whole year of hangings. but the next step will go quickly! yeah!!!
I also finished all the orange houses for the broomstick hollow quilt. I just have to add stars and moons to these blocks. cant wait to finish this! I love this quilt!!!
My Mom's neighbor is a quilter too. she brought over a top she just finished! isn't it pretty? I love how the stars sparkle. Thanks for sharing Mary!
