This is a finished top from one of Gwen's retreats - the topic was strip quilts (as in bars). I merrily cut/assembled pieces in the most unconventional way, but things went together better than I expected. I seem to make things harder than they need to be. It's taught me to take more time in visually dissecting the layout before beginning. I assembled the borders when I was without my fabric stash, so things grew from necessity. I'm thinking it was serendipitous because I'm happy with the way it turned out.
Below is a picture of my Halloween mantle - Halloween is my favorite holiday. The picture on the right is of my Mom and Aunt trick-or-treating at their grandparents. This must be from the early 1930's. I treasure this picture and look forward to displaying it every year!
