Quick Post

Happy New Year to all of you! So far, it has been a good one for me. I have spent more time in the sewing room, and have my finished blocks to share. There is a narrow strip, one row, to be added to the left, and top side to finish the design. They are sewn, but don't fit on the design wall. I sewed these in four patchs, and still need to complete the top, of course. Now that it safe and secure on the design wall, I think I'll take a short break from it to start Lori's Doll Quilt Along!

Love the simple chain pattern with the scrappy blue background. In the photo the chains appear to me to be a golden brown. Is that a true representation of the color? I like the look, whatever it is.
I need to get started on the doll QAL, too!

This is such a soothing pattern with a nice soothing colorway. It's nice to read you've spent more time in the sewing room, too!!! Yippee - the QAL. :) Happy New Year. *karendianne.

I agree with all the above comments...very calming colorway. It will be a good quilt to snuggle under when the cold winds blow and you need to relax.

This is just beautiful! I love the soft background-its like you created your own fabric just to highlight the crossing squares.
