Sewing Day from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday I had to admit finally that I had over done it with the outside work and didn’t do much.  I had lost my energy.  My green beans finally got planted and the grass got cut (I’m sitting for that how difficult is that) but after that I came in the house and between reading […]

Postage Stamp and Stars from Quilts....etc.

I have had many complements on the Postage Stamp quilt and the Border.  Some have asked where did the pattern come from or did I design it?  I can’t taken complete credit for the border.  I kind of used a pattern but yet I didn’t cut one piece out from the book it came from.  […]
