My New Morning View and some Quilty Finishes from Pointless Quilter

With my new job I actually am starting at the same time I used to leave for my old job.  Who knew sunrises were so pretty.  I'm a night owl so this has been quite the adjustment for me. 

And as promised, some quilt finishes.


Trick or Treat was a block of the month, pre-cut with the fusible already on it from Shabby Fabrics.  I did zig zag with coordinating threads around all the pieces and then quilted it.  Some of it glows in the dark.  I love this and can't wait to hang it next year.
