I've been working on reducing my fabric scraps. This quilt was finished and bound yesterday and is now on my bed. It's 64" x 80". I have another quilt in the frame now that I hope to finish by the end of next month, another scrap quilt started, and plans to make two smaller quilts. All of these are machine pieced, one with a small amount of applique. I want to get back to appliqueing blocks for my Homecoming quilt as well. Too many quilts! Not enough time!
~When finally the last carols have floated away into the starry darkness, the last good night has been said, the last wrapped package laid under a shining tree, there comes a small, quiet enclosure of time for every person to be alone with Christmas. ~ A Farmwife's Almanac of Country Living by Rachel Peden
