Preparing for Friday. NYC.

Things are GROWING around here....
The siggy quilt is taking shape! So? what do you think?
So much for that column fabric... way to drab! 
Perhaps it will live on the back...
or NOT!

I am back in NYC, and brought along my pieces to finish the two borders at
our METRO MOD sewing day at city quilter on Sunday!
What a fun way to end a great "Quilters Take Manhattan" weekend!
Jackie is coming down tomorrow too. Can't wait!

 One of our MOD members, was thinning her stash, and sent me a big package
of red pinks and oranges....(Below) I jumped right in... time for a little applique project!
 The fun part has been auditioning backgrounds.... and trying to figure out just how
many of these babies I wanna make... I'm thinking not very many!

This quilt cutie is an oldie I recently got, it was waiting for me here at the loft!
Isn't it funky?
It makes me smile every time I walk by it! I love it!

I'm cleaning up my loft... So I had to make new pillowcases for my bed...
Because you know, cleaning = spruce things up, 

SO MUCH FUN to read all your lovely comments on the giveaway below.
Thank you so much for all your kind words.
I really appreciate you all coming to see what I've been up to...

Can you all just come over and sew, like right now?

  5. Thanks for the invitation! - a bit too far, just now - maybe one day?
    Signature quilt looks good and it's nice to see my block in there among all the lovely others.
