Do you ever have one of those quilts that you spend more time un-sewing, than actually sewing? Well this was one of them! It had nothing to do with the instructions...it was just me! Kim's instructions are great...don't know what my problem was, other than I was not as focused as I should be. I decided to do as Kim Brackett suggests in her book, Scrap-Basket Surprises...challenge myself to use only scraps to make this quilt. And I did. In retrospect, I think I would like it better if my lights were more uniform...there are too many different shades. Guess I do like a more controlled scrappy quilt! I made a quick trip to the quilt shop and purchased the borders...some Jo Morton's Spice Chest. It is aptly named "Kitchen Sink"!
After about 4 inches of snow on Monday, today was gorgeous! It was 70 degrees, so I worked in my flower beds...so nice to see little bits of green poking through!
